- Here is an article from the Daily Yomiuri about the man who mapped Yakushima: Filling in Yakushima's blanks
- And here are two articles on Yakushima from the Japan Times. The first is a profile of Rainer, a long time resident of Yakushima, who apart from the bees and honey, runs a small campsite and guesthouse in Onoaida and is listed in the accommodation section on the site (www.eu-guesthouse-in-yakushima.net).
- The second article is more general and talks about the film 'Ukigumo', the rainfall, the forest and ends up being a thinly veiled advert for Sankara, a newly opened resort which bears remarkable similarities to the previously over-priced luxury resort on exactly the same site.
