Hiking in Japan

Late Summer: The late summer rains and an usually high number of typhoons have brought especially wet conditions to Japan’s mountains. Be on the lookout for landslides and washed out sections of trail. Once this low pressure system passes the fine weather of autumn should settle in, so be patient over the next couple of weeks until conditions become more stable.
