Japan Alps | Adventure through the Rocky Mountains

Neon lights, skyscrapers and crowded metropolises are what usually spring to mind when visitors think of Japan, so it surprises many to find there is an expanse of rocky landscape to discover for the more adventurous. More than 70% of Japan’s landmass is mountainous and covered by forests, pushing much of the 127 million strong population to the well-populated coastal areas and creating a central wilderness within the country. Situated on convergent continental plates, nature has produced sweeping tracts of mountain plains with volcanoes strewn throughout, creating the famous hot spring resorts and relaxing getaways for the islands residents in any season. The Japan Alps is an incredible assortment of mountains that provide for winter activities as well as beautiful nature scenery for hikes and photographers to enjoy. The Japan Alps is easily one of Japan's largest and most stunning nature destinations for visitors to explore.
