My co-guide Gabe and I are leaving for a 7 day 6 night hike in the Northern Japan Alps. We are intending to climb Yarigatake, one of Japans highest and most famous peaks. Should have lots of hot springs and lots of 10,000ft mountains. Our mission is to scout trails for future possibilities of leading campers up them, mark evacuation routs, make contingency planns etc. A 7 day hike is by far the longest I've ever done and should be an excellent way to spend my birthday...as long as we don't run out of food.
