Book Description Kodansha International, Japan. Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Updated & Revised Edition. 206 pages including b/w illustrations.

The detailed, practical hiking guides are enhanced by the geologist author's descriptions of the landforms (Japan is still a volatile, volcanic land), climate, fauna, and flora. There are hikes for the fit and unfit alike, but even the most challenging can usually be adapted to the novice's needs. Includes maps, information of budget accommodation, where to buy camping and hiking equipment, and a Japanese language guide. Size: 12mo. Bookseller Inventory # 055424
