October 3, 2016

1. Official Instagram Account of National Parks of Japan

The Ministry of the Environment will open its official Instagram account of National Parks of Japan as a part of ongoing "Visit National Park!" project.

Park rangers who play important roles in 33 National Parks nationwide will share their "emotional moments" in their daily duties by posting photographs to Instagram to convey the charms of National Parks.

Among all the park rangers, active rangers who are mainly in charge of outdoor fieldworks such as patrolling, conducting scientific research and nature interpretating, will play a central role in sharing the unique attractiveness of National Parks in real time.

We invite you all to follow our Instagram page.

When you visit one of the National Parks, please post your own photographs by adding the hashtag "#NationalPark_Japan."
