Kirishima-Kinkowan National Park/Yakushima National Park

[Kirishima-Kinkowan National Park]
IT is located in Kagoshima and Miyazaki Prefectures, south of Japan.
Established in 1934 as Kirishima National Park, Kirishima-Kinkowan National Park was one of Japan's first national parks. The park can be broadly divided into northern and southern parts.
Mt.Sakurajima watches over the bay, sporadically emitting ash and creating a unique landscape that has become a symbol of the park. Residents live in harmony with the volcano, engaging in fishing, farming, and tourism-related activities. The volcanic area boasts many local specialties, including Sakurajima radishes and Sakurajima tangerines. We can introfuce you to various experiential activities.

[Yakushima National Park]
Yakushima Island and Kuchinoerabu-jima Island framed Yakushima National Park and are located on the bountiful sea where the Japan Current flows. Even though the distance between the islands is only 12km, they were created from different processes and have very different natural landscapes.
Yakushima Island has a steep terrain with mountains of the highest peaks in Kyushu along with remarkable natural landscapes of the forest with giant trees like Japanese cedars over 1,000 years old. The natural beauty of the island is recognized as an outstanding universal value of the World Heritage.
On the other hand, Kuchinoerabu-jima Island is the largest volcanic island among the Satsunan Islands where fumaroles activities continue. The eastern part of the island exhibits volcanic landscapes while the coastal region maintains unique natural landscapes with coastal cliffs and sea caves eroded by strong wave action. Additionally, although it is a volcanic island, it is covered with rich vegetation, and endemic species not found on Yakushima Island, like the Erabu flying fox, can be seen.
