Outdoor physical activity is directly associated with improved outcomes for cardio vascular health, obesity, stress-related illness and mental health. Outdoor recreation is easy to access for all, as there are many types of activities to suit interests, abilities and environments. There are social benefits to completing outdoor recreation activities with clubs, and up skilling with providers.

Hiking Mount Fuji during the summer climbing season can be fun, rewarding and a great way to experience Japan.

The owner or user of the land has the right to expel persons who act inconsiderately or who by improper conduct cause damage or inconvenience to the property or rightful interests. It is not permitted to use sites on cultivated land for picnicking, sunbathing, staying overnight or the like without the permission of the owner or user. For passage on lakes and rivers (open or ice-covered watercourses), the provisions of the Water Resources Act and the Act relating to motor traffic on uncultivated land and in watercourses apply. The county governor may decide that the period when access to cultivated land is unconditionally prohibited pursuant to the first paragraph shall be shorter or longer than the period from 30 April to 14 October for a specific county or parts of a county. Any person is entitled to access to and passage through uncultivated land at all times of year, provided that consideration and due care is shown. Outdoor recreation is more popular than ever (yay!) but more people can equal more poop – and that’s a problem.
