Hiking in Japan

Spring Pollen: 2023 is a particularly bad year for cedar and cypress pollen, so please take care when heading into the mountains.

New Youtube Channel: 2023 marks my entry into the YouTube world. I plan to create new content monthly, so feel free to subscribe if you’d like some visual information about Japan’s mountains.

Mt Fuji: Mt Fuji is now closed for winter. Trails will reopen around the end of June.

COVID-19 Update: Japan has reopened to foreign tourists, so please take personal preventative measures when traveling and hiking in Japan. Hopefully this summer will mark the return of a semblance of normality in the mountains of Japan.

Guidebook: Our new guidebook has been released by Cicerone Press (UK). Despite the pandemic, copies are still available directly through their website for a special discounted price.
