Took a one day hiking break out of Tokyo after 3 months and right before the rainy season starts tomorrow with all its (never-ending) glory. The trail that I did looked like a fairly nice one from the descriptions and I thought that anything would do after all this time. Little did I know that I would be hiking on a trail deserving an overseas trip on its own. If you plan to visit Japan when this is all over, you may want to consider adding a nature destination to your itinerary in addition to cultural ones – that`s where Japan truly shines.
