The Kyushu-and-Okinawa Region

The Kyushu Region
The Kyushu region incorporates seven prefectures, and exhibits many of the extremes that Japanese culture and nature have to offer. The large number of national parks provide a broad range of biodiversity, active volcanoes, unique marine spots and outstanding views. The prefectures still show traces of their days as key points in the history of Japan’s contact with foreign nations, and the trade and religion that entered the country through the region.

Okinawa
Further south, Okinawa has its own unique culture and a warm climate that distinguishes it from the other islands of the archipelago.
Japan’s southernmost prefecture stretches between Kyushu and Taiwan, and is characterised by its subtropical islands, gorgeous weather and biodiversity.
