Field Herping Tour
Japan has a very rich and unique ecosystem associated with temperate forest and rice fields.
Reptiles such as snakes and lizards, and amphibians such as frogs and newts are abundant in these environments, most of which are only found in Japan. We currently have two guides that specialize in herpetology (the study of reptiles and amphibians).
We will take you to our favorite herping site, where you can learn about the biology of the animals, how to identify, catch and photograph them!
Point of This Tour
Japan’s rice paddies are a very unique environment. Discover the local herpetofauna and much more here!
This tour will still be held in light rain. As you know, frogs love that weather!
Our expert guides will allow you to safely observe the reptiles and amphibians, such as this Japanese pit viper Gloydius blomhoffii.
