#402: Yakushima National Park (category: national park)
Yakushima National Park is the 30th national park in Japan. It consists of Yakushima and Kuchinoerabu-jima, both of which are the isolated islands located at the south of the Kyushu island (refer to #063).
Originally, the Yakushima area was incorporated into Kirishima-Yaku National Park (refer to #401) in 1964. But in 2012, the area was separated from Kirishima-Yaku National Park, and became the independent Yakushima National Park.
