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 thought it will be some cheesy sight seeing spot wear couples took photos of heart shaped stump. But it's way more than that. You can feel the gravity of the forest there. Spend a little while longer inside the stump than just trying to...More

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.
