Hiking in Japan

Summer: The rainy season is pretty much over, which means there should be stable high pressure systems over the next couple of weeks (apart from any typhoons). The summer heat is intense, so it’s better to head to higher elevations (above 2000 meters) or to the northern island of Hokkaido if you want to escape the humidity. Speaking of which, here is a new hike for those based in Furano.
