Sobo-Katamuki Quasi-National Park (祖母傾国定公園 Sobo-Katamuki Kokutei Kōen?) is a Quasi-National Park in Ōita and Miyazaki Prefectures, Japan. Established in 1965, the park derives its name from Mount Sobo (1,756 m (5,761 ft)) and Mount Katamuki (傾山?) (1,602 m (5,256 ft)).[2][3] The Quasi-National Park borders two homonymous Prefectural Parks, namely the Sobo Katamuki Prefectural Natural Park (Ōita) and Sobo Katamuki Prefectural Natural Park (Miyazaki).[4][5]
