Embark on a journey to explore the many facets of wildlife and nature in Japan. The Japanese archipelago is rich in wildlife and nature. This website is a gateway to exploring the many facets of NATURE IN JAPAN. Find out about the varied and interesting BIOMES and HABITATS found in Japan. You can also learn about the WILD & WACKY WEATHER of Japan.

In our explorations, we’ll make FOREST FORAYS into the Japanese forest and countryside to examine the PLANTS OF JAPAN or TREES OF JAPAN and their foliage and fruit and of course, see what’s in bloom in GARDENS around us. BUG BOY’s guide will let you take a peek at what’s in his BUG BOX and you can find out more about animal wildlife in the COOL CRITTERS segment or about beguiling birds in the BIRDING BOX.

If the sea is your kind of thing, you might be more interested in the SECRETS OF SEASHORES & SEALIFE that Japanese coasts will yield up.

    This is a great source of information and very good photos. I found your site looking for a seed source of the Lonicera caerulea from the Kuril Islands and wondered if you think there might be some way to get a few seeds.

      Thank you for your kind comments. I think the plants you mention are protected plants, though limited cultivation and stock of the plants are likely available at nurseries in the vicinity.

    Great site! I was really inspired to write a song for my friend Satsuki and found the perfect flower picture on your site. I made a citation to the photo in my video description but still thought I should let you know in case you do not wish for it to be featured. But I really like the picture and hope you dont mind. ^^ Satsuki is my favorite flower by the way and thanks.

    • Thank you for asking. Could you just let me know what the citation was, to make sure you get it correct? Was it made out to Nature in Japan?

      • Thanks. Keep up the good work with the composiing!
