I was surprised at the resemblance to Black-browed Reed Warbler, this bird had a marked whitish supercilium and well marked dark line above it with a pale crown, but song seems good for this species and the legs were pale pinky-yellow. Upperparts appeared unstreaked but hard to tell

Spanning more than 3000 km from northeast to southwest, the Japanese archipelago comprises four major islands and thousands of rocks and islets that stretch from Taiwan to the Russian Far East, and encompasses a wide range of habitats. Japan is home to some of the most dramatic and least-known birds in Asia, such as Steller's Sea-eagle and Blakiston's Fish-owl on frozen Hokkaido.
