Also included within the remit of the park are Sakura-jima, Yakushima and the Ibusuki sand baths. Although rainy during the summer months, the park is strewn with spring flowers in April and May, including Azaleas.

The Ebino Kogen plateau is the centre for both gentle walks and more advanced traverses and hikes.
