About “Hiking in Japan”

This area may be known as Snow Country, but it’s not only beautiful in the winter. Spring and summer in Snow Country are gorgeous and mild, and the mountains shed their coat of white and instead put on a lush blanket of green. In autumn, the mountains change again to a veritable rainbow of yellows, oranges, and reds.

Japanese culture places a major emphasis on the four distinct seasons, and nowhere can these seasons better be experienced than in Snow Country.

If you’re in Japan this spring, summer, or fall why not go on a hike? We have prepared hikes of many different intensities, ranging from a couple hours on the mountain, to an 8-hour trek over several peaks. However you want to experience the mountains of Japan, we can help you. Just reach out to us and let us know what kind of hike you're looking for. We have maps and all the information you need to go one of these hikes on your own. Alternatively you can hire one of our guides.

Check out more specifics at our hike pages for different levels: BeginnerIntermediate, and Intense.


Pricing varies if you hire a guide.
Maps and instructions are free if you want to go out by yourself.
