Welcome to the site!
My name is Jason from the U.K. and I have lived in Kyushu for around ten years. I have two fabulous daughters who often go on hikes with me and love the challenge and attention they get from other hikers. This is my blog detailing my adventures and hikes around Kyushu.
I have always been interested in the outdoors and have always loved camping and exploring in the countryside when I was growing up. But I have been overweight since my teens and last year (now in my mid thirties!) I decided to do something about it. I started hiking, then morning training exercises, then I added some home Yoga, after that trail running and so on. Although the goal was not initially to get fit the impact has been transformative and I encourage everybody to engage with nature to improve both their physical and mental health.
Please note: All information provided on this site was true at the time of writing. Routes are often damaged due to the weather or natural disasters and bus/train timetables can all change.
Check out the mountains page for a list of the mountains by prefecture and the blog archive for the hikes in order of when they were done.
