I joined the research of Yakushima Macaque at Yakushima island just like last year. The Yakushima Macaque is one of the subspieces of Japanese Macaque and its habitat there is considered to be the southernmost of Japan.
I was taking a rest at a bower, looking at this Kuchinoerabu island. This island is about 12 km far from Yakushima and it takes less than 2 hours by ferry. Someday, I want to go there, too.
