Hiking in Japan

Early Autumn: The worst heat of the summer appears to be over, and the torrential rains are finally moving on. It’s a perfect time (barring the occasional typhoon) to hit the trails, and to celebrate I’ve added a new hike to the Kansai region. Also, if you happen to be in the Togakushi area next weekend (Sept. 20/21) then please stop by the campground to say hi. I’ll be there with several dozen other hiking enthusiasts for the annual Hiking in Japan gathering.
