Hiking in Japan

Late Winter: It’s been a relatively mild winter in western Japan, with quite a bit of rain/cloud thrown in for good measure. The ume blossoms have already started blooming, and it’s only a matter of time before the spring pollen hits in full force. The recent spring-like temperatures have also increased avalanche risk in snowy areas, so please exercise care if heading out on a snow hike. The Japan Alps and Mt Fuji are best appreciated from afar this season.

Hiking in Japan is now on Twitter, so feel free to follow and check out my 365 mountain project .
