Located just south of the Kamchatka Peninsula and the Sea of Okhotsk, the island of Hokkaido is home to some of Japan’s last unspoiled natural spaces.
In winter, the island experiences huge snowstorms, strong winds, dense fog and drift ice.
In the white landscape and deep silence of the winter months, nature offers a spectacular bird festival!
The majestic and vulnerable Steller’s sea eagle, the rare Blakiston’s fish owl, the endangered Red-crowned crane, the Whooper swan,
the White-tailed Sea Eagle, the asian rosy finch, the brown dipper, the Glaucous gull, the Slate-faced Gull, the Ancient Murrelet are among the species
that live in the frozen landscape!
With this presentation, I would like to share with you the winter magic of Hokkaido!
