Minami Alps National Park
Minami Alps National Park (南アルプス国立公園 Minami Arupusu Kokuritsu Kōen) is a national park in the Akaishi Mountains, Chūbu region, Honshū, Japan. The Minami Alps National Park was established on 1 June 1964. It extends along the border of Shizuoka, Yamanashi and Nagano Prefectures for a length of 55 kilometres, and a maximum width of 18 kilometres for a total area of 358 square kilometres. The Park is a very mountainous region, centring on the Akaishi Mountains with several noted peaks of over 3000 meters in height, including Koma-ga-take, Senjō-ga-take, Akaishi-dake and Kita-dake. The park also protects the headwaters of the Fuji River, Ōi River and Tenryū River. Flora in the park includes extensive stands of Japanese beech, Japanese stone pine and hemlock spruce. The largest fauna is the kamoshika and noted avian species include the ptarmigan. The park has minimal public facilities, and the only approach is mountaineering. Other large faunas include Asiatic black bear, wild boar and Sika deer.
