Hiking in Japan

Summer: The rainy season is pretty much over for most of Japan, which means the unbearable heat and humidity have now set in. It’s best to head to elevations above 2000 meters in order to escape the heat. Hokkaido comes highly recommended as well. and here’s a new hike for those of you heading to the northern island.
