about

Unprocessed and non-edited field sketches recorded in Yakushima island, Japan, summer of 2011.

Yakushima is an island of about 500 km² and in the south part of Japan. It is covered in dense forest noted especially for old growth Cryptomeria trees known as "sugi" in Japan. Jomon Sugi, which is the oldest and largest of nearly 2,000-year-old-growth cryptomeria trees on the island, is estimated to be between 2,170 and 7,200 years old. The island forms part of Kirishima-Yaku National Park, and in 1980 an area of 18,958 ha was designated a UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Reserve. (from wikipedia)
