Japan, 15 February-10 March 2019




Fatbirder's Top 1000 Birding Websites


We visited North-Japan from February 15 till March 10, 2019 during a three-weeks self-organized winter trip.
We started our journey on East-Hokkaido (February 15-23), to see and photograph famous species like Red-Crowned Crane,
Steller's Sea Eagle and Blakiston's Fish Owl. We succeeded quite well (satisfying enough for us at least...)
and saw some other nice species aswell, among which (Asian) Sea Otters, 2 species of seal and numerous Sika Deer and
Red Foxes. We ended our Hokkaido-part with a long drive to Tomakomai in the west for a ferry-trip to Niigata.

So our Honshu-part (February 24-March 10) started in Niigata at the westcoast of Central-Honshu, where we
visited a few wetland areas in and around town and did a one-day journey to Sado Island (February 26) aswell.
After that we travelled to Yamanouchi (to see the famous Snow Monkeys), did some birdwatching around Karuizawa
and some mammalwatching around Chino and Okutama, before we reached Tokyo. Unfortunate our 2-day trip to the
Izu Islands was cancelled due to rough sea conditions, so we spend our last 4 days (in stead of 2) in downtown Tokyo.

A (Dutch) trip report can be downloaded through here.
