Kyushu Olle Course Trail Resource
 
In the early stages of planning a spring 2018 trip I ran across this resource.
I'd never heard of "Olle" courses.
It is a trail concept that originated on Jeju Island, Korea.
I thought I'd put this out there for those interested in Kyushu.
Range of easy to hard walks with links to area lodging, food, and attractions all across Kyushu
I'm using it for my trip planning next spring.

Excellent information! Thanks, kalihiwai2! Hopefully it will spread to more areas in Japan and elsewhere.

I know of it but never participated. Since close to 70% of the country is mountainous, there is no shortage of hiking anywhere.
