According to the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Japan's geothermal reserve is the third largest in the world, and 80 percent of those resources are in national parks. The nation, however, has only 18 geothermal power stations in operation, and the resource accounts for just 0.2 percent of the nation’s annual capacity.
