Geography & Climate
Yoko has 2 islands that lies along the Genkai Sea. About 73 percent of Yoko is forested, mountainous, and unsuitable for agricultural, industrial, or residential use. The islands of Yoko are located in a volcanic zone on the Pacific Ring of Fire. They are primarily the result of large oceanic movements occurring over hundreds of millions of years from the mid-Silurian to the Pleistocene as a result of the subduction of the Philippine Sea Plate beneath the continental Amurian Plate and Okinawa Plate to the south, and subduction of the Pacific Plate under the Okhotsk Plate to the north.
