Spot the beautiful birds of Hokkaido with AJT on our 5-day Hokkaido birding tour, with a professional birding guide who will show you the most famous Hokkaido birds, including the beautiful red-crowned crane.

Japan is one of those wonderful countries for wildlife that you could enjoy birding literally anywhere, but for true bird-lovers, on the lookout for rare birds from around the world, Hokkaido has a few that cannot be missed. Your tour will be made in the company of a professional Japan birding guide, so you won't miss any of the delightful birds on our tour. Our special 5-day Hokkaido Birding Tour makes sure you have ample opportunities to view these magnificent birds, as well as experience some of the local culture. On arrival at Kushiro Airport, where the tour begins, the birding begins straightaway with a trip to Tsurui, where you can see the magnificent red-crowned crane. One of Hokkaido's most famous birds, the tancho (as they are known in Japanese) draws travelers from around the world to watch them dance and mingle together in winter. We have two days set aside for looking at this splendid bird in all its finery around Tsurui before traveling to Lake Kussharo, winter resting ground of the dainty white whooper swan. In the evening, you will have plenty of opportunity to search for Blakiston's Fish Owl, a local owl considered sacred to the indigenous Ainu people. Finally, we travel around the coast of Rausu and the Notsuke Peninsula, where the Ryuhyo or "drift ice" harbors local waterfowl and raptors including the enormous Steller's Sea Eagle - one of the largest eagles in the world. The tour finishes with one more opportunity to spot Blakiston's Fish Owl - a bird best seen at night. An itinerary perfect for birding enthusiasts who look for rarer birds, we're certain you will enjoy our Hokkaido 5-day Japan Birding Tour.
