Hiking in Japan

Autumn: The fall colors are now changing at around the 1500-meter mark. In Kamikochi they are at their peak, but so are the crowds. Mt. Fuji now has a dusting of snow, and the first snows will fall in the Japan Alps any day now. The autumn rain front came a bit late this year, and now through the end of October you can expect a lot of rain if heading to the mountains. Please take rain gear with you.

Hiking in Japan is now on Twitter, so feel free to follow and start using the hikinginjapan hashtag.
