Japan boasts an incredible selection of terrain covering the entire spectrum. This leads to eclectic hiking adventures on every island. The fishing communities along the coast of Hokkaido complement mountain treks with culture, while the subtropical weather in the south boasts an entirely different scope of the biodiversity. There are an endless supply of adventures! Conditions are generous for snow and air quality, and access throughout the islands is more seamless than you might think. Whether visiting Okinawa and its historical impact, Sapporo and its role as a northern hub of culture, or the main island and its relentless mountain ranges, Japan is a destination just waiting to be explored!

With multiple islands of equally interesting landscapes and scenery, a true Japanese hiking trip could last a lifetime. Many programs spend the better part of a week delving into a particular area; some offer day-trips and others exceed a week.

We had an excellent time hiking up to the summit of Mt Kurodake. Jun gave us a good intro to the flora and fauna on the way up and regaled us with stories all the way up. He set a pace suitable for us and ensured our safety throughout. Jun comes highly recommended!
