(en) The girth is 5.8m, height is17m. This tree is a little shrine "Inochinushiyashiro" near a famous shrine Izumo Taisha. This is not huge but it is so spiritual. I feel this tree holy and venerable. How about you?

Kanie, thank you for your reply. You don't happen to have any photos of the 60 metre Sugi do you, or any of the taller Sugis?

Dear 123RedRob,

The tallest Sugi in Japan is 60meters.

Joumonsugi in Yaku Island is the hugi trunk , the girth is 16 meters.

Takai no senbon sugi is 25 meters in girth, height is 45 meters, 500 years old in Nara Pref.

But this tree may thurs coalescence.

Kanie would you have any of the really big Sugi, Cryptomeria Japonicas growing anywhere near where you live? Info says that they can grow to 70 metres, would you have any photos of giant trees of this size? I would love to see some photos of the really big Cryptomerias. Do you know how tall the current record holder Cryptomeria is in Japan and what girth it is?

Indeed this is a beautiful gnarly old tree. I can imagine this area has a very special feel around it.

Kind regards,

Tim

Very nice!

The grid co-ordinates above show up on google earth as the middle of a field, is there a slight error in them?
