This weekend is going to be a new experience for me as we’re going hiking in the Japanese alps, not far from Nagano. I can’t say that I’ve really had a chance to see Japan outside of big cities, so I’m really looking forward to this. We leave by bus from Shinjuku late tonight, get to the mountain early tomorrow morning, have all day to hike (I forget the name of the place we’re going, but it’s pretty much as high as Mount Fuji, so it’s going to be major altitude), and then we take the bus back to Tokyo at the end of the afternoon. Look for some Tokyo Boy moblog updates throughout the day.
