Tusk Photo - Japan Winter Photo Safari

20th May 2015

This 14 night Winter Photo Tour is tailored for nature photography enthusiasts, allowing enough time to capture the Snow Monkeys as they bathe in the warm springs and capture magical images of the Whooper Swans at the volcanic Lake Kussharo. We travel to the city of Rausu on the Shiretoko Peninsula which is a Unesco World Heritage site to capture the unbelievable Eagle action of the Steller's Sea-Eagles and White-Tailed Eagles. We end the tour with the beautiful Red-Crowned Cranes that are caught up in their graceful mating dances as they announce the early arrival of spring.

During the trip, you will also have the opportunity to photograph Sika Deer, Ural Owls, Red Fox and possibly the world’s largest owl species, Blakiston’s Fish Owl ~ all of these back dropped by a beautiful, majestic winter panorama.

Tusk Photo uses one of the top guides in Japan who, together with your award-winning Tusk host will ensure that you have unequaled opportunities to capture these Japanese wildlife spectacles.
