Hiking in Japan

Golden Week: The Golden Week holiday has now begun, which means the summer hiking season is officially here. The Japan Alps are still buried under a couple of meters of snow, so watch out for unstable cornices and late season avalanches. Kyushu and Kansai are now completely free of snow, so make the most of the beautiful weather and hit the trails. I’ll have a few new hikes posted over the coming weeks, as well as a couple of posts about guidebooks that are long overdue.
