Higashi Takebaru West Course

  • 3km
  • 60min
This course takes you through a cluster of Japanese laurel trees and a forest of Kumamoto's famous nango cypress trees before arriving at a century-old forest of measa cedar trees, a type of tree that is the treasure of Kyushu. The forests grow slowly towards the sky, generation after generation. Upon your return, the gong of Nohara Tenmangu Shrine, a municipally designated cultural property, awaits, along with a 450-year-old enormous zelkova tree.
