At One with Nature
National Parks of Japan


Aired: September 3, 2020 (UTC)


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.



일본은 여러 섬으로 이뤄져 있다. 북쪽의 홋카이도에서 남쪽의 오키나와에 걸쳐 있어 다양한 경치를 제공하며 34개의 국립공원은 각각 독특한 개성을 간직하고 있다. 이 시리즈에서는 일본의 국립공원을 방문해 각 계절의 아름다움을 즐기고 그곳에 사는 사람들을 만난다.

이번엔 도와다하치만타이 국립공원을 방문해 서로 대조되는 두 지역을 탐험한다. 한 곳은 도와다핫코다 지역으로 잔잔한 호수와 산속의 깨끗한 개울이 있는 곳이며 또 한 곳인 하치만타이 지역은 유명한 화산 지대로 습지가 여럿 있으며 온천수가 풍부한 곳이다.

Le Japon est composé d'un chapelet d'île, les paysages y sont extrêmement variés de Hokkaido au nord à Okinawa au sud et chacun des 34 parcs nationaux du pays est unique et possède des caractéristiques très distinctes. Dans cette série documentaire, nous irons visiter certains de ces parcs nationaux afin de profiter des paysages qui changent au gré des saisons et nous irons à la rencontre des gens qui y vivent.

Dans ce programme, découvrez le Parc national de Towada-Hachimantai et ses deux régions très différentes : celle de Towada-Hakkoda, avec son lac paisible et sa rivière de montagne, et celle d'Hachimantai, connue pour son activité volcanique, ses marais, et ses nombreuses sources thermales.
