Hiking in Japan

Rainy Season: The rainy season will be here any day now, so get out there and enjoy the last few pleasant days before the humidity kicks in. I’ve been busy hiking in the mountains of Fukui Prefecture, including a visit to Yasha-ga-ike pond (seen in the picture below). There’s still plenty of snow in the Japan Alps, so exercise caution when heading up into the alpine this season.

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