This page contains links to “virtual hikes” in Japan. I’ve divided the content by geographical region, for ease of reference, and added basic information about the hikes at the end of every post.

The page itself is a work in progress, so please check back regularly for updates and new content!

I hope you enjoy the virtual adventures!
