Yakushima Environmental and Cultural Village Center

On my third day in Yakushima, I visited the Environmental and Cultural Village Center.  The admission fee was 520 yen and it was totally English friendly - from the staff to the audio guide to written materials. There was also a movie in Japanese, with English subtitles.  The museum layout was great and had different areas for Yakushima - Water Island, The World of People - the Ocean, The World of People - the Village, The World of Trees, and The World Inhabited by Gods.
