Range DescriptionMagnolia kobus is distributed throughout Japan. This species has been recorded at an elevation of approximately 350 m asl in the Unobe river valley near Rokugo, central Hokkaido. It may also occur in China and South Korea but there is some uncertainty about this. A study on the stem bark of Magnolia kobus was based on specimens collected in Jinju, Kyungnam in Korea (Yang et al. 2006). It is not known from Shikoku and Cheju Island in South Korea.
