Oze National Park (尾瀬国立公園, Oze Kokuritsu Kōen?), is an area consisting of open Greenland in Fukushima, Tochigi, Gunma and Niigata Prefectures in Japan. The park is 372 km² in area and is the 29th national park in Japan.

Opened on 30 August 2007, the park's area includes the marshes and the mountains in the Oze area, formerly part of the Nikkō National Park, and other nearby areas including the Aizu-Komagatake and Tashiroyama mountains.

The park was the first new national park to open in 20 years, since the designation of Hokkaidō's Kushiro wetlands as a national park in 1987.

    "The number of daily visitors and perception of congestion have been compared in Oze. The data of the number of visitors was calculated from the Ministry of the Environment sensor data; and questionnaires were distributed to visitors to assess perception of congestion. The number of questionnaires distributed was 8,223, with 4,276 responses (response rate: 52.0%). Survey points to evaluate perception of congestion included: evaluation vs. expected congestion, evaluation vs. ideal number of visitors, and evaluation of feel of disturbance by crowd.  The results of the survey are as follows: 55% of the respondents were on a day trip and 39% stayed over night, 37% of the respondents were first time visitors to Oze, and some respondents say they changed the visiting date and/or time by considering congestions before visit. In case of Oze, the number of daily visitors has been found to be an important figure to evaluate perception of congestion. However, a separate survey will be required for the places, such as rest houses and restrooms, where intensive congestion tends to occur. It has been revealed that respondents’ perception of congestion differs according to survey points."
