PSIP Description: 
Art discovers red-crested cranes, Mt. Fuji and Koyosan and takes a dip in Nagano's hot springs.
Long Description: 
The image many of us have of Japan is congested and kinetic. But Japan has a wild side. In winter, beyond its crowded cities, the country delivers quiet, unexpected natural beauty. In the second season opener, Art Wolfe ventures north to the remote region of Hokkaido to view iconic red-crested cranes; south to the mountains to take a dip in Nagano's hot springs with mischievous macaque snow monkeys; and journeys on to the sacred temples of Mt. Fuji and Koyosan on a photographic pilgrimage.
