Nature is the only thing that keeps all life on this planet afloat. It dates back millions of years, even before the appearance of humans. These tremendous natural materials essentially give us energy while producing breathtaking landscapes.
We’ll show you a collection of photographs from an ancient woodland that dates back thousands of years in this article. Meet Yuichi Yokota, the man behind the camera lens that captured the images you’ll see below. He is an internationally famous photographer who works with SONY, Apple, Google, and many other clients as a professional photographer in Japan. He was always fascinated by nature and enjoyed exploring it.
As a result, we stumbled upon an incredible group of images that he recently shared about an old Japanese woodland known as ‘Shiratani Unsuikiyo.’ This is made even more exciting and unique because this specific woodland contains a collection of 7000-year-old cider trees!
This forest’s significance and breathtaking beauty led to its designation as a Natural World Heritage Site in 1993. This woodland can be found on an island south of Kyushu. It is currently a National Park that is open to the public. A stroll among these old trees should be on your bucket list if you ever have the opportunity to visit Japan.
Another exciting aspect about this woodland is that it served as the basis for Studi Ghilbi’s classic anime film “Princess Mononoke.” So these are some fascinating facts to consider if you decide to visit this island.
