It may be the largest, busiest, and most densely populated metropolitan area in the world, but Tokyo’s 38 million residents share their home, often unknowingly, with a surprising array of wildlife. This extraordinary film, gorgeously shot in 4K by leading natural history cinematographers, visits a wide range of habitats to explore where animal life is thriving and follows scientists studying human-animal cohabitation. Capturing an unseen side of Tokyo, we find everything from hunting goshawks and thieving monkeys to tiny spiders and giant, 25-feet whale sharks.
