Hiking in Japan

Summer: The rainy season has pretty much finished, but be careful of afternoon rain and thunderstorms when heading to the Japan Alps. I’ve freshly returned from a trip to Kitadake, where there’s still a long snowfield in Okanbasawa. Take care if traversing through that route and be careful of heat stroke when hiking at lower elevations.

Hiking in Japan is now on Twitter, so feel free to follow and start using the hikinginjapan hashtag.
