Search for topos

This site covers a wide range of mountain related activities including hiking, trekking, snowshoeing, free climbing, alpine climbing, mountaineering and more recently caving too. In addition to trip reports trip reports, I also try to publish as many topos as possible on Japanese mountains. In it you will find:

  • general (geography, history…) information about the area,
  • ski resorts and mountain lodge location, information and contact,
  • access from Tokyo with links to train and bus schedules,
  • maps references,
  • security information and rescue contact,
  • sinks to my trips reports with downloadable GPS trace,
  • links to webcams,
  • etc
The objective is not to give you ready-made topo indicating where to start and end your hike, where to turn left and right, which route to follow, where to look at the view… I believe that to look at a map, to choose or even sometimes to invent, in any case, to imagine your own itinerary and then to realize what you planned is part of the fun of any outdoor adventure. I just hope the information on this site will help you to plan your own trips and enjoy Japanese mountains like I do.
