白谷雲水峡の苔むす森からさらに一時間険しい登山道を登ると 突然パッと視界が開けて 平らな岩が《太鼓岩》しんどい思いをしてせっかく登ったけれど…高所恐怖症の私には 岩の上に立って素晴らしい景色を見ることが出来ませんでしたが とても気持ちが良かった～(少し残念だけど） more »When I climbed a steep mountain trail for another hour from the mossy forest of Shiratani Unsuikyo, the view suddenly opened suddenly, and the flat rock was "Taiko rock" and climbed with great pains. I was afraid of heights, i couldn't stand on the rock and see the wonderful scenery, but it was very pleasant.
太鼓岩是整個行山行程中其中一個具挑戰性的景點，要登上去需要行數十級斜的樓梯才能到達，上面可俯瞰到屋久島美麗的山景，真的是大地在腳下的感覺，很值得前來。 more »Taigu Rock is one of the most provocative spots in the whole mountain trip, to climb to the need to walk ten oblique ladders to get to the site, above overlooking the long beautiful mountain views of the house, is really the feeling of the earth under the earth, well worth coming forward.
