Early Summer in Tokachi River
Our stage this time is Tokachi River that flows from the Daisetsuzan mountain range through the Tokachi Plain into the Pacific Ocean. Our program host tries his hand at fishing upstream on the river, which is 156 kilometers in length. There is a wide variety and number of fish in the river, and he aims to fish some Dolly Varden, that live only in Hokkaido Prefecture. Later, we show you rare footage of some wildlife, including Red-crowned Cranes, taking care of their chick in the middle reaches of the river.
