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 Aso-Kuju National Park. We explore the massive caldera area of Mt. Aso, its expansive grasslands, and the Kuju Mountain Range—majestic sights that are protected by the people who call it home.
