I went on a self-service tour to Kyushu, Japan in 2011. Occasionally I see Ujiu Island on the Internet, because I like quiet places, especially want to see the "rope venison" tree on the island, so I listed it as a must-go place. When I came back, I wrote a travel note. It happened that the Diaoyu Island incident happened and has been put on hold until now. Personally, Ikujima is not really a tourist hotspot. Ikujima is suitable for people who like nature and mountain climbing. In the nature reserve on Ikujima Island, the protection of the natural environment by the Japanese is really inconceivable. We went to Ikujima by steamer on Kagoshima (the transportation is very expensive). Traffic to scenic spots on the island is very inconvenient. Buses are less frequent and suitable for self-driving. We stayed in an apartment for two nights. Instead of climbing the mountain, I went to Ujiushu Natural Culture Forest, Baigu Yunshui Gorge, and watched a movie about Ujiushu Island in "Ujiushu Environmental Culture Village Center". Like Baigu Yunshui Gorge, not only because it is the scene of Hayao Miyazaki's film "Princess Ghost", but also because of the thousands of years of towering fir trees, the quiet primitive forest.
If you like Hayao Miyazaki, you may have seen Princess Phantom; if you like Tian Fuzhen, you may have heard Soul Partner. However, the MV scene of this song is Jiushima Island, a mysterious island located in the South Kyushu region of Japan, which belongs to the intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO. In order to explore this primitive forest, besides traveling on foot, we have to accept the unresolved places and no convenience stores. It is because of all kinds of inconveniences that we have retained the natural scenery. Perhaps we can see the deer in the jungle, perhaps inadvertently brushing past the fir trees for thousands of years, and the traces left by time on mossy trees, as if. There's an elf watching you secretly somewhere. From Kagoshima Airport direct transfer arrived here, the propeller of the small aircraft burst suddenly, no stewardess will demonstrate safety instructions, will not command you to turn off the mode of mobile phone aircraft, we all use mobile phone cameras and various electronic equipment to take pictures, the scenery outside the window is endless, 35 minutes of flight distance is not able to stop curiosity, the aircraft landed in a primitive aircraft. When we get off the plane, we throw aside our reserve and start shooting all kinds of pictures, because it is so simple that even the baggage conveyor belt is replaced by manual handling. The first impression of Ikujima is so original.
Yakushima - "World Natural Heritage, Hayao Miyazaki's Animation "Princess Ghost" Landscape Yakushima is quickly recognized by the world because of its unique ecosystem and natural landscape, such as medicinal fir, a variety of nearly extinct animals and plants, subalpine organisms living on the coast and so on. In 1993, it became one of the first places in Japan to be listed as a World Natural Heritage Site. From the West Forest Road to the top of the mountain, it reaches 10,747 ha, and 21 (%) of the island is recognized by the World Natural Heritage Site. Here we can not only feel the infinite positive energy endowed by nature, but also realize the coexistence of nature and human ecology.

I'll regret it. http://kagoshima-kankou.com/Kagoshima.Energetic-Japan/cn/detail/13.html in Japan, if you hear about going to Ikujima, you will be amazed. In the TV media, the praise of it is not stingy. Maybe the Chinese who first came to Japan may not come here specially. But as a deep swim, it's really good. It's not far from Okinawa. It's about 10 hours away. If you go to Okinawa, I suggest that you can stop by Ukushima. If you play in Kitakyushu, you can fly directly from Fukuoka to Ukushima and arrive in less than an hour. This time from Kagoshima to Ikujima chose the ferry. The ship at 8:30 a.m. hurried to South Port of Lulan Island early in the morning to change tickets at the window with the ship exchange ticket sent by the travel company. In addition, other modes of transportation can be chosen to go to Ujiu Island.
Yunshui Gorge, Baigu, Ikujima, is the scene of "Princess Ghost" by Hayao Miyazaki. The Baigu River at the entrance of the canyon has clear water, huge rocks and steep valleys. The Nanchuan Trail has lasted for three or four hundred years. On both sides of the trail, there are Mixed Woods of Uighur and Illuminated Leaves. The forest is covered with green ground cover plants, namely bryophyte forest, which is a deep and mysterious world.
Traffic is more expensive, so it's better to take the island scenic spots for a round at a time. Ten hours of climbing, as long as the feeling is not meat foot should be able to complete, I usually never exercise, but the mountain needs to rent a stick, otherwise it is difficult to walk behind, it is better to stay near the mountain pass the night before rather than stay in luxury hotels, those are too far, climbing early. Then there's a hot spring on the island that only has ebb and flow. See the right time to experience it, but it's the ultimate version of open bathing. There was no activity on the island at night except eating. Convenience stores are few. Considering the comprehensive price ratio, it is recommended to take night boat and return express boat when going to the island, which is economical and time-saving. Finally, I remind you that it's best to rent a waterproof camera. It's raining all the time. If you say it's raining all the time, you don't feel like it's not going to stop at all. Even if it doesn't stop, it's just a local situation.
After several days of climbing on Ikujima Island, the scenery of Princess Ghost is picturesque and quiet. Baigu Yunshui Gorge, everywhere you look, everywhere you shoot, is a beautiful scene. Even the Japanese seldom go here and there are few people. They have successfully avoided the rush of buying people.
It is recommended to stay a few more days. Otherwise, at least three days will be left before we can get the basic water source of Baichuan for half a day, climb mountains for one day, and circle the island for another day. Overall, the local environment is good. Ten hours of mountain climbing, even if my disability (lack of exercise) can hold.
Wujiu Island has many mountains and vegetation, from the bottom to the top, plant species from subtropical plants to alpine plants, as well as broad-leaved forest belt, coniferous forest belt and so on. The ornamental of plants is very strong. It has plenty of precipitation, mild and humid climate, fresh air and great tourist value.
It can be said that Ikujima is one of my favorite scenic spots in Kyushu. But I know it has nothing to do with Hayao Miyazaki's animation, because I never watch it. The reason I like it is that it is said that there is a magic tree in the middle. It takes a long time to walk. Does this make people feel mysterious? And you can also see the Baigu Yunshui Gorge, shuttling through the dense primary forest, happy to think about it.
