My visit to Yakushima was an amazing experience. The forests there are ancient Japanese cedar forests and were used as the inspiration for the movie Princess Mononoke. One of the days I spent in the forest I was in the clouds the entire time. It was a very surreal experience.

I took a lot of photos and wasn’t really sure how I should go about writing a blog post about it. There wasn’t really anything I could write that would really convey what it was like. Writing about my day and my time on the island isn’t really as interesting as what I saw.

I decided to do something very different.

Here is what I’ve spent the better part of the last 24 hours working on. It is sort of an experiment, but I think it will do a better job of explaining what it was like than my words ever would.

I hope you like it….
