Top Alpine Climbing Trips in Japan
The territory of Japan consists of a stratovolcanic archipelago made up of thousands of islands. Offering stunning scenery, the Japanese mountainside has shaped the country’s history and customs for centuries. Including the cultivation of a strong climbing culture that peaks at the iconic Mount Fuji. Visit during the spring and summer months for ideal alpine climbing conditions.
Lying just off the coast of continental Asia, Japan consists of approximately 6,852 islands, of which the four largest contain most of the population of 127 million. The majority of the nation’s terrain is rugged, mountainous, and volcanic, while being blanketed in thick forest. The large scale of territory, differences in geography, and varying climates also create a diverse ecology of flora and fauna, including some rare and endangered species.
The north of the country receives a humid and continental climate, while the south experiences a subtropical and rainforest climate. While its coastal geography results in a high level of rainfall each year, that translated into snow at higher altitudes.
Visit during the cooler months of December to April for ideal alpine climbing conditions.
