The Chichisugi Japanese Cedar is an 800-year-old cedar tree that stands towering on the eastern side of Mt. Daimanjisan on Dogojima Island, the largest of the Oki Shoto Islands. It's over 30 meters tall, and the thick trunk splits into 15 separate trunks part way up. At a spot about 10 meters from the ground, 24 giant stalactite-shaped milk roots hang down, which is why it's called Chichisugi, which literally translates to "breast cedar." At their longest, some of these milk roots reach up to 2.6 meters. The surrounding area is cool even in summer, and especially when it rains, a mysterious atmosphere fills the air.
