    I been really curious about the yakushima ken for several years now. I have heard good things and bad thins about them but overall they seem to make good hunting dogs. The bad thing I heard was that they might not be the ideal boar dog.

    Thanks for sharing. They're interesting. What's the climate like in Yakushima?

    Interesting to find another japanese breed. They look somewhat like Thais.

    It's wet old forest, lots of mountains. Not too cold.
  • I have to say one of my favorite nihon ken. However,IMO the mikawa ken looks better
    image I just love these rare unknown nihon ken.

    I have also heard from a few hunters in Japan that the Yakushima ken has redbone hound in them.

    Wet forest and mountains? Sounds like the Pacific Northwest. ;) It would be cool to learn more about the Yakushima Ken.
