Hiking in Japan

Early Autumn: As we head into October, the temperatures continue to be unseasonably warm and humid. The autumn colors are predicted to be later than usual this year, with the peak in the Kansai region around the end of November. The consumption tax will increase to 10% from October 1st for most things, so expect some prices to change throughout the country.

New Guidebook: We are pleased to announce that our new guidebook has now been released by Cicerone Press (UK), who are now shipping orders. Get yours for a special discounted price now.
