Nova travels to the home of Japan's indigenous people, the Ainu, in this video journey. Located on the remote island of Hokkaido, these aborigines live in enviable natural splendor. Coastal waters run up against towering mountains, while forests intertwine with valleys and marshlands. Hokkaido plays host to a staggering variety of wildlife, from white-tailed eagles to grizzly bears. Ainu animal legends also come to life under Nova's scrutiny. The stories include the Japanese crane, the flying squirrel, and the huge Blakistons fish owl that is thought to bring bad luck if it passes across the moon. This visually stunning diary of an unspoiled wilderness is a testament to nature's complex infrastructure.
