|The South-west coast of Yakushima|
Location: Nakama (See Google maps)
Nakama is a quiet village and the beach is usually deserted. It's the best place on the island to surf.
TSUKAZAKI TIDAL POOLS
A great safe place to go snorkeling provided the tides allow you.
Scramble down to the river bank and you'll find this rare sight so far north in the hemisphere.
SHAKUNAGE NO MORI PARK
A great place to wander, paddle in the river and watch the flowers.
The biggest of the waterfalls and it roars after heavy rain.
