Hiking in Japan

While there are a number of excellent multi-day hikes in Japan — Nakasendo, Kumano Kodo, and Shikoku Pilgrimages to name a few — there doesn’t appear to be any book that will help english speakers enjoy their time in Japan.

The best reference appears to be this outdated, under-appreciated, and woefully expensive copy of the Lonely Planet Hiking in Japan guide.


I settle on a few of the older, available books.
