Yambaru National Park
Yambaru National Park is located in northern Okinawa and was designated Japan's 33rd national park on September 15, 2016. With one of the country's largest subtropical laurel forests, Yambaru National Park is a reflection of how the Ryukyu Islands were formed.
The historical background of these islands has created a diverse natural environment, home to the rare Okinawan Rail bird, and many other indigenous and rare plants and animals. Also, there are limestone cliffs, natural karst limestone formations and mangrove forests.
The expansive subtropical nature of Yambaru National Park provides park users with the chance to interact with Mother Nature by setting the stage for numerous leisure pursuits, such as visiting scenic spots, hiking, canoeing, animal spotting or just taking a drive.
