A comprehensive, richly illustrated guide to Japan’s astonishing animals and plants—and the natural forces that have shaped them

This richly illustrated guide is the first comprehensive and accessible introduction to the extraordinary natural history of the Japanese archipelago. It explains how Japan’s geology, geography, climate, seas and currents have forged conditions supporting a diverse range of species—from cranes, bears, eagles and monkeys to plants, butterflies, dragonflies, frogs and snakes—many of which are found nowhere else in the world. Engaging and authoritative, this book is a must-have for anyone who wants to explore or learn about Japan’s natural wonders, from the Japanese Macaque—the famous snow monkeys—to the magnificent Steller’s Eagle.

  • Introduces Japan’s geology, geography, topography, climate, habitats, biodiversity and much more
  • Explains where and how to watch and photograph wildlife in Japan, including whales
