Since Hokkaido is practically bursting with innumerable varieties of flora and fauna, it can be a bit daunting for even experienced nature hunters.
There’s simply too much, and having a local guide is the perfect way to get the right kind of introduction, especially if you’re looking for specific birds or other creatures.

When we arrived in Kamikawa at dusk we met first with Yohei Shimizu, a local nature guide and expert on the Kamikawa area, and went back to stay at the Sounkyo Hostel, which he founded as a base for the growing number of travelers coming to the area.
Before settling in to rest for the next day, we took a short walk into the typically pitch-black night which, on this occasion, was brightened by perfectly backlit trees using spotlights set-up by locals. We were in the peak season for fall colors, and this luminous display was the perfect way to start off our time in Kamikawa and the Sounkyo Gorge area.
