phylum Chordata Although named for Japan, the Japanese hare is found primarily in five countries on the continent of Asia: Japan, China, North Korea, South Korea, and Russia. In areas of northern Japan, the west coast, and the island of Sado, where there is heavy snowfall, the Japanese hare loses its coloration in the autumn, remaining white until the spring, when the reddish-brown fur returns.
