Hiking in Japan

Winter: Happy Year of the Monkey. 2016 promises to be another exciting year of hiking here in Japan. I’ll start off the year by introducing a new hike in Shiga Prefecture. The peak is famous for winter rime ice, so it’s the perfect time to dust off the crampons and enjoy the snow scenery.
