Satoyama: Japan's Secret Forest

In Japan, there are still many places where people quietly live with nature, making the most of the country's unique natural environments. At the heart of such places are Satoyama, small forested mountains blessed with rich nature moderately modified by human hand.
Praised as being a traditional rural landscape, Satoyama is by no means a relic of the past. It is filled with hints for a sustainable life in the future. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
