Setonaikai National Park

Setonaikai National Park covers the entire area of the Inland Sea of Japan. This sea lies between Honshu and Shikoku - two of Japan's four main islands, with a third main island - Kyushu - bordering the sea to the west. It consists of about 3000 islands - small and large, inhabited and uninhabited, and stretches about 400km from east to west. It is famous for views of clusters of islands rising from the calm sea. Many residents in this national park continue to live in a traditional way with fishing and farming as the main sources of livelihood. The region has a mild climate and the main natural vegetation is black pine, although broad-leafed trees are found along with the pines.
