Japan has some of the most spectacular peaks anywhere on the planet and so it’s only natural that visitors to the country are immediately drawn to peaks like the iconic Mt. Fuji, the most visited mountain in the world; the many beautiful peaks of the Northern, Central, & Southern Japan Alps; as well as the 100 Famous Japanese Mountains spread throughout the Japanese archipelago. Being a lifelong climber, the attraction for Japan’s breathtaking mountains was immediate for Gary J. Wolff, and so within only 4 short months of arriving in Japan over 21 years ago, he was standing atop Fuji-san, the nation’s highest peak. After becoming firmly hooked on the exhilarating 360-degree panoramas afforded by Japan’s alpine country, over the course of the next 2 decades Gary managed to climb all of the 29 highest mountains in Japan and 38 of the tallest 50. To the greatest extent possible within the confines of an eBook, Gary has shared intimate details of his love affair with Japan’s highest mountains including pics, maps, trail descriptions, and other useful info based upon his 2-decade-long climbing experience in Japan. Not a hiking guide per se, "The View from the Top of Japan" will nonetheless whet your appetite to the point that you’ll want to hit the Japanese mountain trails immediately!
