Hiking in Japan

September: Typhoon season is officially here, and the last typhoon to push through left us with a stationary front that has dumped a lot of rain all over Japan. Perhaps this is a good time to lay low and start planning those autumn hikes. At the top of your list should be this new hike in Fukui Prefecture, with an amazing forest located surprisingly close to a nuclear power plant. Best to do this hike while the plants are currently off-line.
