The Mishima Village Kikai Caldera Geopark consists of three main islands and surrounding sea area. Residents in this geopark is only 369 people (Feb 2020), which is the smallest in Japan. This geopark is certified as a member of Japanese Geopaks Network in September 2015, and had revalidation in 2019. The geopark was certified with reservation, which means it will have revalidation in two years.
