Hiking in the Japan Alps















We're taking another trip. We're off to Hakuba to hike in the Japan Alps for a few days, and so I won't be posting until we return. A good friend is visiting and hiking is his thing, so off we go! We'll be staying in mountain huts as we did in Hokkaido, but these won't be as small or as remote. The photos we've seen show gigantic things that look as though they ought to house a villain from a James Bond film. I promise to tell all when we return.

Thanks! It WAS great, although we had to come down early due to a typhoon. We had a looonnnggg hike out yesterday through pouring rain and some treacherous spots on the trail. It was beautiful, but I'm glad to be on level ground for a moment. Promise to write more soon! First, laundry...
