Isabella Bird in Wonderland: Unbeaten Tracks in Japan (ふしぎの国のバード, Fushigi no Kuni no Bādo) is a manga series by Taiga Sassa (佐々 大河, Sassa Taiga), published by Kadokawa, portraying Isabella Bird's exploration of Japan. It is serialized in the magazine Harta.[1]

In May 2015 Kadokawa published the first tankōbon, and in 2018 it began publishing, within Japan, a bilingual Japanese-English version of the comic intended for Japanese people studying English. The bilingual version places the original Japanese text in the page margins with new English text taking its place. The bilingual comic volumes include a column from British journalist Ryohei Kawai (川合 亮平 Kawai Ryōhei) and an interview with the author.[1] Kadokawa also publishes the manga in Taiwan.[2] The company Éditions Ki-oon publishes the manga in France, as Isabella Bird, femme exploratrice.[3]
