This summer, we went to Yakushima Island to see Jomon Sugi cedar with our own eyes. Some areas of Yakushima Island are inscribed as a World Nature Heritage Area. It is really a great natural environment from antiquity to the present day. We learned that cedars over 1,000 years old are known as Yaku Sugi, and those less than 1,000 years old are called "Ko-Sugi" (tiny cedar). The Yaku Sugi cedars living today are prohibited from being cut down. Yakushima Island's forestry centers are built with artificially planted cedars and Domaiboku stumps, which are the trees that fell many years ago due to natural disasters, such as typhoons, etc.).
