Tree hugger 

Around the beginning of next month, I'll be heading down to Yakushima for a three-day 'medium-ard' extended hike. Yakushima is the sixth largest island in Japan, and is located about 50 km due south of Kyushu. According to what I've read on the place, this is one of Japan's last remaining terrae incognitae, featuring rich fauna and flora native only to this island. (For example, the 屋久杉 are sylvan behemoth which promise to make that tree in Miyazaki's 「となりのととろ」 look like a mere sapling.)
