Hiking in Japan

Spring: The cherry blossoms are in full bloom and the snow is beginning to melt in the lower elevations. There is still a lot of snow in the Japan Alps, with fresh snowfall still occurring up until late May in some places. Exercise care when heading into the mountains, as the weather has been unstable recently.

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