Hiking in Japan

Rainy Season: The seasonal rain front has now moved in over the main island, so expect a fair amount of wet weather between now and the end of July. The rainy season does offer a chance to see lush foliage against a backdrop of fog, if you can bear the humidity that is. The warm, wet weather also brings out the leeches, so be especially wary if hiking in the Tanzawa mountains and the Suzuka mountains, as both ranges are known for the blood-sucking creatures. I hope to have some new hikes on the site over the coming weeks.
