Hiking in Japan

Early Autumn rains: The autumnal rain front has moved over the archipelago a few weeks early this year, bringing unseasonably warm and humid air together with some very strong thunderstorms. Keep an eye on the weather and exercise caution when heading into the mountains at the moment.
