Looking for partners.

I am planning a trip there in 2016.

I was told June is good, but there seems to be a rainy season then.

I would also like to bike and bird while there, but can arrange thee activities on my own.

I don't know anything about rock climbing in Hokkaido but hiking/backpacking is terrific. It can be a bit rainy in June. If you visit Lake Akan area I highly recommend hiking Mt Meakan and soaking in the onsen after. vietgoeswest

thanx.

There is rock climbing, but I don't have beta.

I'd like to climb and hike and do some birding

FYI if you have visible tattoos you will not be welcome in the onsen.

It is true however, if tattoos are small enough to be covered with a bandage, you are good to go.

BTW, I went to Japan a few years ago and found few partners on rockclimbing.com. I was in Tokyo area so it may be little different but maybe it's worth a shot. Good luck! Japan is beautiful and worth a visit. (I am biased for I am Japanese. I wish I could go with you!) Oh and yes, June is really rainy there. Don't know anything about birding seasons in Japan, but there are pikas in Hokkaido :)

Are we? Tell me more.
I climbed with bunch of people from all over the world and that was super cool, but I didn't have a chance to climb with Japanese climbers.
