Accompanied by photographer Bret Charman, we explore Japan in the midst of winter in search of the finest wildlife photographic opportunities in Hokkaido and the Japanese Alps.
Japan's credentials as a wildlife photography destination are often overlooked, but, away from the glitzy neon lights and high-rise buildings of the cities it is possible to experience a wildlife spectacle that rivals anything you may have witnessed elsewhere. Furthermore, by travelling in winter, there are no end of wonderful images that we can capture due to a stunning array wildlife ranging from Steller's sea eagle on sea ice off the coast of Hokkaido to Japanese macaques bathing in the hot springs of the Japanese Alps.
The wintery conditions will provide exquisite settings for our photographs and our excursions and photographic sessions will be timed to coincide with the best light of the day adding wonderful colour to our portfolios.
In addition to this dedicated photography special we offer further departures on our Japan's Winter Wildlife tour which are perfect for those who would prefer less emphasis on photography.
The full itinerary detail is available on our website.
Please note: Most of our hotels have western-style rooms with private bathroom; on Hokkadio we stay in ryokans (traditional Japanese inns), which have a futon laid on the floor, rather than a bed.
This is a group trip with fixed departure dates. Please refer to our website for further information.
