Tohoku hikes (東北)

Northeastern Japan, more commonly referred to as the Tohoku region, is an area teeming with volcanic calderas, hidden hot springs, and pristine virgin forests. It’s also home to some of the best non-technical, multi-day hikes in this country (Mt. Iide, Mt. Asahi) as well as perhaps the best “if you only have time to climb one mountain in Japan” hike (Mt. Chokai).
