At One with Nature
National Parks of Japan
Japan is made up of a string of islands. The landscape varies wildly from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south, and each of the country’s 34 national parks possesses distinct and unique characteristics. In this series, we visit national parks in Japan to enjoy the seasonal views and meet the people that live there.
This program features Towada-Hachimantai National Park and its two contrasting areas: The Towada-Hakkoda area with its tranquil lake and pure mountain stream, and the Hachimantai area, a famous volcanic region with numerous marshes and a wealth of hot spring resources.
