The Jomonsugi Cedar tree is the oldest Yakusugi Cedar tree and is said to be around 7,200 years old.
The Cedar tree is approximately 25m tall and is 16m in circumference.
Those who look at the tree trunk's surface's roughness and unevenness will be able to feel and understand what it is like living in the harsh conditions of Yakushima's nature.
Recently, an observation deck has been constructed so as to protect the tree's roots from being trampled by the 10,000+ hikers per year who make the trip.
