A forest theme park to enjoy some exercise

At the foot of Mt. Mocchamu at an altitude of 150m is Satoyama Woods. There you can experience the Canopy Walk and a rope slide while enjoying a light meal at the treehouse café. During the summer-only night tours, there is star-watching, exploration for glowing mushrooms and observation of nocturnal animals.

Enjoy the woods of Yakushima from the point of view of a bird

On the Canopy Walk, where you walk on a 300m boardwalk from tree to tree, you can experience walking slowly with a safety harness while picking up the scents of the trees and feeling the breeze. It is a walk whose eye level ranges from 2 to 12 meters where at the lower levels, you can view evergreen forests from the sides and look over the tops of young trees in the middle levels, and observe vine-like plants creeping up the trees and encounter small birds and insects living among them. At the higher 12m levels, you will be able to experience a view at bird’s-eye level. At the terrace just before the goal, there are megaphones where you can face Mt. Mocchamu and yell out your wishes.

Enjoy a thrilling flight through the landscape

The Canopy Rope has you geared up on a rope strung across the trees which you slide upon for a total length of 40m at a height of 12m during the first stage. Then from the halfway point, you slide through the air for another 50m at a height of 11m while enjoying the landscape below you as the greenery and streams pass by. Since you can stop wherever you like during the slide, you can enjoy a 360-degree view mid-air. There is even an economical plan in which you can enjoy the Canopy Rope 3 times. You can also try out woodcraft and pressed flowers. Rental shoes, pants, raincoats and gloves are available but if possible, please come out in comfortable wear.
