Hiking in Japan
Winter: Well, it’s already February and it’s been a particular snowy winter so far, especially in western Japan. Be prepared for snow when heading into the hills, and make sure you bring a headlamp or flashlight on every hike, because the sun sets particularly quickly, especially in the valleys. The pollen season is expected to start from mid-Febuary, so take precautions if you’re allergic to cedar pollen. Hiking in Japan is now on Twitter, so feel free to follow and start using the hikinginjapan hashtag.
