If you're looking to hike and meet new people then welcome the Hokkaido Hiking Club. I'm trying to schedule a monthly hike up Mt. Moiwa in Sapporo where you can see a beautiful view of Sapporo City, you have the chance to meet new people.
If I have time, I'm going to try to organize hikes around Hokkaido. Doesn't matter if you're Japanese, new in town, or have lived in Hokkaido for a while. Please feel free to join。
