Situated in the mountains of northern Honshu, this trackless site includes the last virgin remains of the cool-temperate forest of Siebold Beech (commonly known as Japanese Beech) that once covered the hills of northern Japan. In this forest you can find the black bear and the serow - now this is the first time that I've heard of serow, an animal species with the looks between a goat and an antelope, and the Japanese species is supercute!
As Ai explains, these woods have been famous for their beautiful autumn leaves since ancient times - and she used a stamp which shows that scenery, gorgeous! I love trees and have fallen in love with this image at first glance. Thanky you once again Ai for this swap :))
