In less than a month's time, I will embark on a 5 day trek through a small Japanese island in the south called Yakushima. It's basically full on wilderness complete with mountain peaks, sandy beaches, natural hot-springs, waterfalls, 7,000+ year old trees, with more wild monkeys than native people. Also, for anime enthusiasts, this island was the main inspiration for the art-design of Miyazake's Princess Mononoke.
I'm asking for contributions to a grand-themed playlist for these 5 days. I already have some early Animal Collective (Spirit They've Gone), and some Yoshida Brothers for the Japanese vibe. But for anyone else that is into this kinda stuff, I ask how you would construct the ultimate "Spirit of the Forest" playlist.
So please, if you can contribute a song or three. Or if you are really into it, construct a whole playlist! Here are a few pictures and videos of Yakushima to inspire:
*NOTE* the music provided in this video is definitely NOT what I am going for. Nothing against it, but am looking for much more atmospheric, ethereal, and ambient.
What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

I've done a bit of wilderness/ambient music treks and not sure if you're looking for actual songs, per se, or albums, but I would recommend listening to the Philip Glass "Qotsi" soundtracks - any of the three but I find Koyaaquatsi and the Anthem tracks from Powaqqatsi work best. Also, even though it was written with space landings in mind, I love listening to Brian Eno's Atmospheres and Soundtracks for this kind of thing. And I'm a big fan of Ulrich Schnauss' A Strangely Isolated Place. He's a little more "electronic" than the other two, but there are some real ethereal tracks on that one.

John Zorn - Redbird For Agnes Martin. One of Zorn's classical pieces. Very sparse, atmospheric and haunting I could totally see treking through those picture listening to it. It's on spotify if you want to give it a whirl.
