Wildest Islands: Japan: Islands Of Extremes
Japan: Islands Of Extremes
Season 2  |  Episode 1  |  SBS  |  April 19, 2016

Japan's 7000 islands cover an incredible range of extreme climates from frozen seas and snow-capped mountains, to sun kissed beaches and steamy mangroves. Winter can be brutal, and Japanese snow monkeys endure the cold by basking in volcanic pools. Spring is a busy time for Japanese fishermen and the sea birds that catch fish for them. In contrast, summer in the southern islands is sweltering, with crabs patrolling the steamy mangroves.
