The Shinetsu Trail runs for 80 kilometers along the border between Nagano and Niigata Prefectures, following the path of the Sekida Mountain ridge. The forests are blessed with a rich ecosystem nurtured by Japanese beech-tree forests. Historically, there were 16 passages through the mountains, used for carrying salt and sea-products. The famous warlord Kenshin Uesugi is said to have lead tens of thousands of his men through these passages to fight the Battle of Kawanakajima.

The Shinetsu apron is inspired by these Japanese highlands and its famous small trails. Though no small pockets for this apron. The two rugged looking cargo vest pockets on the side can carry all your materials as if you were transporting them through the mountain passages yourself. The chest pocket is there for your pencils. No phones that close to your heart.

Description

The Shinetsu Trail runs for 80 kilometers along the border between Nagano and Niigata Prefectures, following the path of the Sekida Mountain ridge. The forests are perhaps best known for their beech trees. Tall, well-shaped beech trees form a corridor of green along the path. The packed-earth trail also makes for easy walking. Spring and autumn are especially good times to visit the trail. In spring, the last traces of snow can be seen among new greenery and flowers bursting into bloom. In the fall, hikers can enjoy the brilliant colors of autumn leaves.

It is one of the few long trails of Japan. This area is blessed with a rich ecosystem nurtured by Japanese beech-tree forests. Historically, there were 16 passages connecting Nagano with Niigata (traditionally called Shinano and Echigo) through the mountains, used for carrying salt and sea-products from Niigata, and Uchiyama paper and mustard seed oil from Nagano. The famous warlord Kenshin Uesugi is said to have lead tens of thousands of his men through these passages to fight the Battle of Kawanakajima.
