The entire island of Yakushima is a world heritage site.
Mountains rising up out of the sea and an abundance of rivers and streams.
An original-growth forest thousands of years old.
The islanders living shoulder-to-shoulder with nature.
All these treasures, the environment, the people handed down from the past.
And some new arrivals.
We find ourselves in a unique space and time.
We hope to record and honor this special place and its people.
