The Red-Crowned Cranes – called tanchozuru in Japanese - are deeply treasured in Japan. Quite literally the stuff of legends, cranes of all varieties have long been regarded as mythical as dragons, with their fabled 1,000-year lifespan making them synonymous with happiness and longevity.
If moody landscapes are your thing, one of the best places to find them is up north, where nature is often both moving and intense.
