Apart from the unbelievably beautiful landscape, the great thing about hiking on Rebun Island is that you simply cannot get lost. The trails are clearly marked, and quite often the trail on the next hill or cliff is already visible in the distance. While the Momo-iwa trail in the southern part of Rebun Island is dominated by green and seemingly never ending cliffs, this Four-hour course at the very northern end of the island offers more diversity, namely stunning capes, secluded beaches, rare wild flowers and a great spot to watch seals.

Travelling abroad to discover new places, getting to know different cultures and learning foreign languages has always been my passion. I was born and raised in Germany; however, for a few years now I've been very lucky to be able to spend my life abroad. I lived for some time in England and Italy before moving to Japan in October 2009. It took me a while to adapt to this very different world; however, travelling up and down the country has helped me to not only adapt, but to actually fall in love with this country Japan. It has also reawakened my interest in photography, so whenever I get a chance I pack my camera and discover something new. Japan is full of beautiful but less well-known places. To make these more discoverable for everybody, I'm very happy to be able to share my stories and photography on this site, and open a world of extraordinary experiences, which would be difficult to find in a guidebook. For any queries regarding Tokyo as a travel destination or any of my published articles, please feel free to contact me.
