Yakushima: Senpirono Falls

In the middle of April, I flew to Yakushima Island in the southern part of Japan, my mum’s hometown, and stayed for two nights. The best part of the trip was mum’s cooking, and also one of the most recognised waterfalls in Yakushima, Senpirono Falls.



It is massive, with a 60m drop, and the mountain view is simply magnificent.

The strength of the waterfall was extreme that day I visited because we had had rain for the previous two days and also that morning. Yakushima gets a lot of rainfall; even outside the rainy season, Yakushima gets a lot of rain.

This place, Senpirono Falls is very inspiring and makes me feel purified in body, mind and spirit.


I flew from Tokyo to Kagoshima with Japan Airlines (JAL), then take a commuter flight to Yakushima Island.
