We stopped here on our way to Jomonsugi. The stump is larger than we thought and has a small shrine inside of it. Very peaceful, beautiful place to rest or meditate for a bit.

Many people are staying inside the holes and wait for the photo. This is a natural amazing place. However. Be prepare that you need to walk a lot before you see it.

An amazing enormous stump but which can only be reached after a good hike. Not everyone might enjoy the hike as much as I did. If you reach the stump, it is worth continuing to Jomon-Sugi!

I didn't know much about Wilson Stump before I got there, so I was truly surprised when I stopped there. The stump is huge and the interior of it seems to be enchanted.

It is tourist place on the way to Jomon cedar tree. It is also rest area. People are on queue to take photo of the natural heart inside the stump.

I guess this is the sort of place to visit with your better-half for the romantic picture of the heart shaped image in the background. Upon advice of our guide we visited on the return portion of our trip to Jomonsugi and had the area...More
