Aired: Jan 05, 2024 (UTC)


An archipelago stretching some three thousand kilometers north-south, Japan is filled with diverse natural wonders shaped by the local terrain and climate. Among these, Japan's 34 national parks are home to rich natural beauty and a unique culture that has been nurtured by the people who live in harmony with the environment. In this program, we visit two national parks in autumn. Our travelers explore Daisetsuzan National Park in the north and Amamigunto National Park in the south, enjoying their wildly different features even in the same season.
