In the extreme north of Japan, in the province of Nagano, where snow covers surface for up to four months in a year, and an average winter temperature is −5 °C sometimes falling to -15 °C, there are warm volcanic mud sources of the Infernal valley Jigokudani, national park which is very well known to the rest of the world. It is here where the famous Japanese macaques (aka “ snow monkeys “) are taking a hot bath, warming themselves up during frosty winter days. The Japanese macaques are the most northern monkeys in the world, the only primates able to cope with subzero temperature. They spend nights in mountains and go down to the valley in the morning to spend the whole day bathing in hot thermal springs. Snow freezes on their heads and when they leave a hot bath being wet, they start to feel the cold even stronger!

We will visit national park of Tsurui to capture delicate dances of the Japanese cranes against the background of snow-covered landscapes. We also visit National park of Shiretoko, east Hokkaido, which is one of the most beautiful corners of Japan’s wildlife Japan, almost untouched by the civilization. We travel here for fish eagles and swans.
