Tanegashima Mangrove Park

The "kandelia obovata" is the only type of mangrove here, which is a dwarf shrub with a growth height of 1m or less.
Kandelia obovata cannot be found anywhere north of Tanegashima, and the area itself is listed among the "500 Essential Wetlands of Japan" put together by the Ministry of the Environment.
The boardwalk here offers a path for visitors to walk throughout the mangroves, and sea kayaking is another activity available here as well.
