Shiratani Unsuikyo Ravine is a popular spot where even those who are not confident in their physical abilities can easily appreciate the primeval forests of Yakushima, including the yakusugi trees that are over 1,000 years old. This area is called the Mononoke Forest, as it became the inspiration for the setting of the film "Princess Mononoke." At 1,050 meters above sea level, Taikoiwa Rock offers beautiful views of Mt. Miyanoura and the Anbo River.
