Yakushima - the summit of Miyanoura-dake 宮之浦岳

Yakushima - the summit of Miyanoura-dake 宮之浦岳
This is from the top of the highest peak on Yakushima, one of the wettest places in Japan due to warm currents and orographic uplift. This combination of altitude, warm currents, and lots of rain give it a diverse flora, and gain it a designation as a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site. There are no big cedars (sugi) up here and only the occasional climbing club from some Honshu university, hiking into a spot of sun before the clouds descend again. The low growth bamboo and huge granite boulders are like nowhere else.
