This is a list of people who want to welcome hikers. If your paths don’t happen to cross, don’t be disappointed: you can look forward to chancing upon others soon.
Some of the places on this list will give you a discount or other special service if you show them your Data Book, Hiking Map Book, or a Michinoku Trail Club supporting member card (marked with a star ★ on the list). Please feel free to check the details and use these services.
