TREKKING(BACKPACKING / HIKING)

トレッキング[TOREKKINGU]

Casual hiking along mountain trails that does not require special equipment. Trekking is a popular outdoor activity in Japan, two-thirds of whose land is covered with mountains and hills. Although it is easier than mountain climbing, careful preparation and appropriate gear, especially trekking boots, backpack, and rainwear, are essential for an enjoyable trekking experience. The amazing power of nature, which can be both healing and destructive, should never be underestimated.
