Yakusugiland - although it may sound like a tacky theme park devoted to trees, it is really more of a nature hiking park. There are short trails that have wooden steps and you don't have to go far before you're surrounded by the quiet cedar forest and enjoy the tranquility of nature left mostly undisturbed. On the longer trail routes, the forest becomes denser, leaving civilization far behind. Some of these trees are thousands of years old so you feel like an explorer. Everywhere there are fallen trees and stumps, exposed roots, trees overgrown with moss and lichens, ferns sprouting from the sides of trees and from overhanging branches, growth upon growth.
