沢登ツアー

沢登 (Shower Climbing)

waterfall_20080625120313.jpg

Hey everyone how was your wet weekend? Mine was probably wetter than yours I think. Last Saturday and Sunday I was in Nobeoka, Miyazaki on a diving tour but before I left for that I went Shower Climbing on Friday and that’s what I want to write about today.

ハーイ!みんなこんにちは。大雨の週末はどうだった?
僕の週末は、みんなよりちょっとよかったかも。先週の土日は延岡のダイビングツアーに行ってきました。でもその前の日に沢登りに行ってきました。今日はその話をしたいと思います。

Most people probably have no idea what Shower climbing is but it`s hiking up the middle of a stream and it was a blast!! This time we went to Kane Mountain near the Mitsuse tunnel, the weather was rainy but I`m defiantly going again when it gets hot because it’s a awesome way to escape the summer heat.

もしかして、沢登りって言葉はみんなあんまりしらないかもしれないね。沢登りとは、ハイキングみたいなんだけど、川の中を歩きます。ちょーたのしかった!!金曜日にみつせ峠の近くにある金山の沢を登りました。その日は雨だったんだけど、これから夏になるから暑さを吹き飛ばすために、沢登りもどんどんやっていきたいと思います

Hope to see you there!

マナちやんの訓練

Manachans Rescue Dog Training

Mana with pack
Hey everyone how was your weekend? Due to the rain Saturday and Sunday`s tours were postponed so on Saturday Manachan and I went to Hitoyoshi for her rescue dog training.
Even thought it was cloudy the training ground was quite hot and humid so we went into the local mountains in an area next to a river so it was nice and cool.




The instructor who we were working with was Kaida Sensei who is a Rescue and police dog handler in Kumamoto prefecture and the main trainer with the Kyushu Rescue Dog Association.

Our objective is to get her so hooked on balls so that she almost goes crazy when she sees them. After getting her hyped up on her ball we then use the ball as her reward for finding someone hiding in the bush. She learns that finding people means getting a ball and getting a ball means fun.
She still needs lots more training but she is progressing along quite well.
Manachan がんばってね!!

June 6~8 ツアーレポート

Weekend in the mountains

river with flowers


lets go to karakuniHi everyone, did you all have a great weekend?
Last weekend was a busy one with 3 hikes in 3 days. Friday was spent hiking up Mt. Karakuni in the Kirishima mountain area of Miyazaki. It was a little cloudy when we reached the top but the view was spectacular. If the weather holds out we`ll be heading back there next Sunday.

Saturday and Sunday were spent once again viewing Miyamakirishima Azaleas in the Kuju mountain range. It`s almost the end of the season to see them so we went for one last look and were glad we did!!

We hiked to the top of Mt. Heiji and the view was spectacular, although a little cloudy, the mountain was soooo pink!!. We worked our way up the mountain via the Yoshibe trail which gently lead us up to the Bogatsuru camping area and after a quick lunch we climbed up Mt. Heiji.

Once again a great day in the mountains. Our next adventures will take place this weekend with a Fukuoka day Hike on Saturday and once again to Mt. Karakuni in Miyazaki on Sunday. There is still room on both trips so if you want to come with us let me know by either email or phone.
Until next time,

くじゅうミヤマキリシマツアー

くじゅうミヤマキリシマツアー


miyamakirishima viewHey everyone, how was your weekend. ? This weekend`s adventure took us camping to the bogatsuru campground in the middle of the Kuju highlands to see the beautiful Miyamakirishima Azaleas. It is at this time of year that the mountains turn pink with flowers. We left Chojabaru parking area Saturday morning under sunny skies and the sound of little cuckoos (hototogisu) singing in the trees above.

皆さんこんにちは、週末はどうでしたか?僕たちの週末は、ミヤマキリシマを見るためにくじゅうのキャンプに行ってきました!今回はまだ満開じゃなかったけどいっぱい咲いていてとてもきれいでした。土曜日の朝すごくいい天気の中、長者原の駐車場から出発しました。森の中にはホトトギスのきれいな鳴き声が響いていました。

We took the “Ame Ga Ike” route to bogatsuru and we reached the camping area around 1:30 and after setting up camp and a quick lunch we headed off to climb Heiji Dake.

雨ヶ池のルートをゆっくり歩いてPM1:30ごろに坊ガツルキャンプ場に着き、そこでランチを食べたあと平治岳を登りました!

The climb up the mountain was quite quick and we were presented with a beautiful sight as the side of the mountain was adorned with pink as the Miyamakirishima were almost in full bloom.
Upon returning to camp and having dinner we headed off for a bath at the Hokain onsen and following that we sat for a while under the stars and actually spotted a meteor and 2 satellites streaking across the sky before heading off to sleep.

頂上までは意外と早く着いたけど、花は美しく景色はとてもきれいでした。
キャンプ場に戻った後夕食をたべて、法華院温泉にいきました。お風呂の後キャンプ場に戻り、星がイッパイだったので外で空をながめていたら、流れ星が1つ流れたのと、なんと衛星が見えました!!

After a warm nights` sleep we were greeted by a glorious sunrise and a bright blue sky. After breakfast we headed off to climb Mt. Taisen. It took about 2 hours to reach the top of the mountain and there was a TON of people, every year on the first Sunday in June there is the “Yama Biraki”event in the Kuju highlands. This years` peak was Mt. Taisen and with it a few hundred people.

温かい寝袋の中で気持ちよく目が覚め、外に出ると朝日はまぶしく空は青くとてもすばらしい天気でした!!
朝ごはんを食べたあと大船山をのぼりました。2時間ほど登ると山頂の近くについたけど、とても人が多かったです。毎年6月の第一日曜はくじゅうの山開きで、1つのくじゅうの山に登るのですが、今年は大船山だったそうです。そのため混雑していて山頂がとても狭かった。

After a short break at the top we headed down and crossed the ridge and descended down through fields of Miyamakirishima to the pass at the foot of Heiji dake and back to camp.
We broke camp and headed back down the “ Ame Ga Ike” route to Chojabaru and a nice warm onsen.

山頂で少し休憩してから、ゆっくりミヤマキリシマの中を歩きながらキャンプ場に戻りました。
キャンプの片づけをしたあと、雨ヶ池を通って長者原にもどりました。
山を下りてから、温泉に入りました。

What a great weekend, the weather was great, the company was great, and most of all the mountains and flowers were great! Seriously if you can go and see these beautiful flowers!!
For us, as time the blooming time is limited we`re going again this weekend, if you want to join us drop me a line or an email, but reserve your spot soon as space is limited.
Until next time, go play outside!!

今回の週末もすばらしいツアーになりました。天気もすばらしい、仲間もすばらしい、なんといっても山と花の美しい景色がとてもすばらしかったです!!
ミヤマキリシマを見るチャンスがあれば、今のこの時期にぜひ見に行ってください!
アマロクの今週日曜日のツアーもミヤマキリシマをみにいきます。参加されたい方は、連絡してください!!
