Nice hike. I'm always amazed when I see Japanese hiking in pants and long sleeve shirts.

I remember having to take the salt tablets and drink large amounts of Pocari working during the summer on rooftops in Tokyo. Brutal, but you dealt with it.

Headed back in a few weeks to enjoy the brutal heat. Not looking forward to that.

Considering you spend days out in the desert, it’s funny to hear you complain about the heat in Japan. With all the humidity here, though, it’s a totally different beast, isn’t it.

Yeah, I don’t know how they can hike in long sleeves and pants, but after getting borderline heat strike on this last one, despite drinking tons of water, electrolyte drinks, and eating a few sodium tablets, I started to wonder if there is some benefit to keeping the sun off your skin.

Desert heat is way different, until it gets up to about 110, then it's hell regardless if there is humidity. 100 is easy to deal with though.

Don’t know if I’ve ever experienced 110 degree heat before.
