I am preparing a holiday to North-Japan (Hokkaido, North- and Central-Honshu) for this winter/spring. I have understand that Hokkaido is a good place to search for Siberian Flying Squirrel, but can’t find any reliable (specific) location to go look for it or any contact information of someone who might do. Near Abashiri seems to be such a spot of which I do find photo’s, but no specific location and still lots of ground to cover. Anyone here who no a location or contact who might?
Have anyone done the ferrytrip from Tomakomai to Niigata? Is that good for marine wildlife and if so, what species should I look out for?
Last but not least: is there any fieldguide for (East-)Asian mammals that covers Japan?
Any other suggestions welcome of course. I did found already some very usefull information here on Mammalwatching.com.
