Hiking in Japan

Mild Winter: It’s been a mild winter so far, and even now in mid-January the peaks of Kansai don’t have much snow at all. Most of the heavy snow seems to be hitting Tōhoku this year. The Japan Alps and Mt Fuji do have plenty of snow, however, so alpine trips this time of year are only for those with proper winter mountaineering skills and equipment.
