明けましておめでとう!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!

Welcome to 2013! I hope you all had a great holiday season and got to spend lots of time with your loved ones. How many of you have come up with New Years resolutions? One of mine for this year is to be better at posting on the blog more and not just on Facebook!

Now that 2013 is here its time to get hiking! Our first tour will happen tomorrow when we head into the mountains of Fukuoka to the Mt. Hiko area to see the beautiful Shioji waterfall which usually freezes to become a glistening curtain of ice. Check back soon to see the pictures!

夏のプログラム

Summer’s almost here!!

20080519143613_20110629132130.jpg

I can’t believe that it’s already almost July!
But with July comes the end of the Rainy season and the beginning of summer.

The beginning of the year saw Amarok and Southern Works join forces and open up our shop and to continue the partnership our summer program will of course include some great hiking trips but also both Day and Overnight Kayaking trips.
Here are the details on our Kayaking program.

平治岳ツアーと福岡防災訓練

It's that time of year again!

Well, its official,the rainy season has come to northern Kyushu that time of year that everyone hates where the rain never seems to stop or where sometimes it even falls sideways!! It officially started over the weekend but luckily no rain so far and we were able to get quick trip up to Mt. Hiji in the Kuju highlands on Saturday.

The Miyamakirishima azaleas are showing off their pink blossoms but haven’t yet fully bloomed, probably over the upcoming weekend. (We’re heading up again this weekend, so drop me an email if you like to come!) It was a pleasant hike through the forest and up to the pass where we stopped for lunch before heading up to the top to enjoy the view. Of course we stopped by my favorite Gyoza shop on the way home to finish off a great day.

Sunday was another early morning start but not for a trip to the mountains but to take part in the annual Fukuoka Bosai or Disaster training this year being held in Ashiya port in northern Fukuoka prefecture. This was a large scale training event with 12 helicopters taking part as well.

This time we went out with Izuka Fire Rescue and Mana and I along with Sakamoto San from Oita and his big boy Chaser searched the disaster site and then indicated a find to the Izuka Rescue team who then carried out the extraction to finish the scenario.

After our section was done there was time to walk around and meet and greet some of the local fire department officials and exchange business cards and got a couple of good leads to do some serious cooperative training in the near future.
Look for more on that in future blogs!

The North Face Event

From Sea to Sky

IMG_0246.jpg

Did everyone get outside to enjoy the beautiful weekend weather? We sure did, on Saturday I lead a hike produced by The North Face Store to promote their new line of Helly Hansen outdoor clothing. Because Helly Hansen has been mainly a name brand associated with water sports we decided to hike up a mountain with a beautiful ocean view to merge the two. Of Course Mana came with us to provide support!

We hiked up Mt. Tateishi in the Keya area of Fukuoka, a great short hike climbing up to a 209m summit but with an astounding view! After stopping for a quick lunch we continued along the looping course to make it back to our cars to make a great day complete.

I want to thank The North Face Store for once again asking me to lead another of their adventures and look forward to the next time. If you get the chance go to The North Face to check out all their cool stuff!

犬ヶ岳ツアー

Golden Week InugatakeTour

Top_20110511234915.jpg

Did everyone enjoy Golden Week? We sure did! We had a great tour deep into the forests of Fukuoka. This time we went to see the blooming Rhododendrons (シャクナゲ) on the slopes of Inugadake and Kubotesan, 2 mountains among the top 100 mountains of Kyushu.

With the exception of the sand from China making for a hazy day the weather was quite nice. A lot of spring flowers were in bloom but unfortunately we were a little early for the Shakunage with only a few blooming and the rest trying hardest to pop out of there buds.

After making good time to the top of Inugadake we stopped for a quick lunch and then headed along the ridge to our next destination, Mt. Kubote another mystical Fukuoka mountain with a beautiful shrine at the top making the effort definitely worthwhile.

This is a beautiful time of year to be heading into the mountains of Kyushu, so why not join us for a hike and recharge your batteries. Take a look at the schedule and drop me an email if you see a trip that peaks your interest.
