Many countries have designated areas of natural beauty as national parks, aiming to preserve outstanding natural scenery and protect local ecosystems. Japan designated its own first national parks—Setonaikai, Unzen and Kirishima—in 1934, and the country now boasts 34 of them. Japan’s national parks incorporate a fair amount of privately owned land, including residential areas, farms and forested areas, providing visitors with a glimpse of local cultures and long-standing traditions.
