Yakushima Lite: A Picture Tour of the Forest of Souls

Yakushima Lite: A Picture Tour of the Forest of Souls



Yakushima is a richly forested island of southern Japan, visited by 300, 000 tourists every year. Its warm-temperate ancient cedar forest is a natural UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site since 1993.

k-bim hiro, a video artist who has frequented the area for over 15 years, takes you to a virtual trip to the peaceful isle.

It is said to rain "35 days a month" on Yakushima. This lavish rain nurtures the subtropical island's tall cedar trees and the mosses that plushly covers the forest floor.

Enjoy this photograph collection of the enchanted forest that inspired the Hayao Miyazaki's film, Princess Mononoke.

Through out the slides, you will feel the breath of nature and the forest spirit that fills the mountains and ravines.

Each photograph captures the forests in both macrocosmic and microcosmic way; dynamic energy of the trees and the mosses moistened with pure water that covers them.

Take up your iPhone now and escape from your daily rushes to take a walk through the healing forest. The beauty of the nature of Japan will heartily welcome you.

All photographs are linked to the map of the shooting location so they can also serve as a tour guide.
