After a hectic holiday season we'll soon be off to Japan for a little winter birding. We'll have 4 days in Tokyo to see the city sights and adjust to Asian time before we meet up with our small birding group. Heading out into the countryside in search of Japan's avifauna, we'll eventually visit all 3 major islands. Along with amazing birds, I'll be on the lookout for unusual textiles, handmade paper, and designs that reflect Japan and it's fascinating culture. Stay tuned!
