Snow Monkeys & Cranes of Japan

Expedition Highlights

  • Witness nearly 14,000 hooded and white-naped cranes in Arasaki, Kyushu.
  • Visit the enchanting, snow-enveloped village of Shirakawa-go, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; the tall, gable-roofed Gassho-Zukuri architecture, which literally means "hands folded in prayer," is unique in Japan.
  • Observe the celebrated spectacle of the snow monkeys that visit and soak in the thermal baths of Jigokudani, and enjoy the therapeutic properties of the hot springs at our lodge.
  • Watch magnificent Steller's eagles and graceful whooper swans at lakes along the coasts of east Hokkaido, and search for the world's largest owl—Blakiston's fish owl.
