Hiking in Japan

2020-04-01

I like to hike, and it's fun to have checklists for goal setting.

100 Famous Japanese Mountains

Kyūya Fukada wrote a book called 100 Famous Japanese Mountains. I'm not particularly hoping to climb them all, but it's fun to keep track of the list. If I have free time in the non-winter months, finding a new peak is a good way to get outdoors.
