Jerry’s Camp Site & Mandala Guest House:

This is such a beautiful scenic spot with the mountain in the background (mochomudake). On the south coast of Yakushima at Onoaida.
The owners Rainer and Naoko are very interesting and friendly. I had a great time there.

In spring many flowers out around the camp area with mountain and sea view. Rainer looks after bees and I was lucky enough to learn something and try fresh royal jelly straight from the young queens  :P .

Hot springs nearby and huge waterfalls. I could swim in the river in April.

If you go to Yakushima try and stay there. Highly recommended!
