The Kii Peninsula is the largest peninsula on the island of Honshū in Japan. It is named after the ancient Kii Province. The area south of the “Central Tectonic Line” is called Nanki , and is home to reef-like coral communities which are amongst the northernmost in the world due to the presence of the warm Kuroshio Current, though these are threatened by global warming and human interference. Because of the Kuroshio’s strong influence, the climate of Nankii is the wettest in the Earth’s subtropics with rainfall in the southern mountains believed to reach 5 metres per year and averaging 3.85 metres in the southeastern town of Owase, comparable to Ketchikan, Alaska or Tortel in southern Chile.
