A 3 a.m. start thinking I’d be the only one on the trail. But you are never alone in Japan, even in the middle of the night on a mountain. Frustrating, yes, but reassuring too.
Eboshidake and Sampukutoge were probably my favourite places to hike to in 2019. I wish I’d known about them earlier
Mt. Gozaisho in Mie prefecture is only an hour’s drive from Nagoya and a great mountain for a day hike.
