WILDLIFE -- Havens of Harmony: Satoyama

Photographer Mitsuhiko Imamori has been traveling across Japan to visit and record the splendor of satoyama, an area where nature and human co-exist peacefully. Dedicated to portraying the people' s traditional lifestyles in satoyama, he feels that he must record them now, or they will be lost forever.
People have lived in the satoyama by using the bounties of nature as sustenance. From this way of life, various environments have been created, which in turn have led to the birth of myriad creatures. Beautifully describing the co-existence between people and nature, Havens of Harmony finds the new attractions of satoyama.
