According to legend, Yakushima still has the giant tree that larger than Jomon-sugi. To search for this legendary giant tree, we used aerial LiDAR data to estimate the distribution area of the giant tree. In the analysis using low-density LiDAR data, the factors related to the distribution of the giant tree were elevation, tree height, tree crown area, tree species and topography, and the giant trees were extracted from these elements. In the analysis using the high-density laser, the factors related to the distribution of giant cedar were set as the gap in the forest and the gentle slope of the valley. We extracted these elements from voxel analysis and estimated the distribution of giant trees.
