Standing at the summit of Mt. Hiji in the Minami Alps, Japan.

This is a personal website about adventuring into the mountainous regions of central Honshu and occasionally Hokkaido, Japan. In normal times I also visit Australia and the U.K.

Over the last couple of years I’ve switched from mostly cycling and bike packing towards hiking and walking and am currently exploring the Japanese Minami Alps and the Nakasendo. That change is reflected in this blog.

I’ve archived all the bike packing related posts but you can still find them at the bottom of the menu.

Some of my more popular post include:

Curve GXR – One Year Review

Toyoura Bay, Kihoku

Tōkaidō – Walking Arimatsu to Atsuta Shrine

Mt. Fuji Sunrise Hike – Eboshidake in the Minami Alps

I don’t do most social media anymore although I do run a very basic YouTube channel. You can also find my hikes on Yamap.

I have a monthly newsletter, Restless.

Feel free to get in touch.
