Chichi-sugi Japanese Cedar

Chichi-sugi Japanese Cedar

*Currently not accessible due to road closure.

A huge tree that stands quietly on the side of Mt. Daimanji, the Oki Islands' highest peak. This tree is 800 years old and about 30 m tall, with a 5 m trunk that branches into 15 parts. From these parts hang about 24 large and small drooping roots. Here you can feel a mysterious atmosphere in an area that feels cool even in the summer, particularly just after rain. Close by the tree are two trail entrances to Mt. Daimanji (around 1 hour one way, steep). Around 15 minutes walk up the hill is the entrance to the trail for Washigamine Ridge and Byōbu-iwa (Folding Screen Rock). It is recommended to hire a guide when hiking these trails.
