Kirishima-Kinkowan National Park
This is one of Japan’s early national parks straddling two prefectures of Kagoshima and Miyazaki. It is divided into two regions: the Kirishima area of Kirishima volcanic mountain range and the Kinkowan Bay area of Sakurajima Island, Ibusuki, and Cape Sata. It is a rare region of diverse ecosystems due to the effects of past repetitive changes in the climate, volcanic activity and high altitude. In addition to being able to see topography specific to a volcanic zone and fumarolic phenomena such as the caldera, crater lake, and Shirasu-daichi Plateau, hot springs dot the area, and many visitors come to the healing hot springs throughout the year. In the Ebino Eco-Museum Center in the Kirishima area, multilingual brochures are provided.
