Nature Documentary hosted by Sir David Attenborough and published by NHK in 1999 - English narration
For at least 2,000 years, a unique way of life has flourished around the shores of Japan's largest freshwater lake - Lake Biwa - fed by more than 500 rivers that descend from the rugged, forested interior of Honshu Island. To exploit the abundant mountain water, generations of farmers have transformed the foothills surrounding the lake into a maze of ingeniously engineered terraced fields. The balance between humans and nature is reflected in the Japanese name for the cultivated areas: satoyama.

It is not broadcasted in UK, only in Japan. But I would like to do it in complete set.
I used to download from demonoid but the picture is not good enough, but this version is very nice for standard definition.
As I know there are episode 3 , but cannot find from internet.
Enjoy. I love this film a lot. ( Take a lot of time to have this, very precious for me and want to share for my friends) , Hope you will . :-P
