Rescue Dog Training

Hitoyoshi Rescue Dog Training


IMG_1613.jpg
Hey everyone, was your weekend as hot as mine was? Is it just me or has this July been a lot hotter than others over the past few years?


Last Sunday Manachan and I went to Hitoyoshi to take part in some rescue dog training. This time was different than most as a Rescue Dog team from Kobe came down to join us. Japan Rescue brought down about 6 dogs and 3 handlers to participate in some wilderness search and rescue. They usually train more is disaster rescue and wanted to gain more experience in wilderness rescue.




All of their dogs did well as did Manachan and we all had a great time. I look forward to the next time we can all train together. There are now quite a few rescue dog associations in Japan and I think it`s wonderful and important that we can all work together and support each other so that we can all learn and grow and become a more useful service for the community.

Okue Camp Tour

大崩キャンプツアー

IMG_1558.jpg
Hey everyone how was your long weekend? Last weekend we went down to Okue for a 3 day camping adventure. We drove down to the trail head Saturday morning and from there we hiked in with our packs to the mountain hut which is about 40 minutes up the trail.
The hut is located next to the Houri river where after we arrived at camp we spent the rest of the afternoon cooling off.










The next morning we were joined by Matsumoto San from Southern Works and another friend Kaji San and of course Matsumoto Sans dog Rocky. Together we headed off to hike the Sanrigawara trail to the point where the Houri river and another river come together and make a great pool for swimming.

After a nice cool down we headed back to the hut for a yummy meal and a relaxing evening under the stars. If you want to learn more about this area, check out the August issue of Fukuoka Now where we wrote a 4 page article about this exact area.

Hakata Yamakasa.
Hey everyone, todays topic has nothing to do with the outdoors but early Tuesday morning I had the chance to see the Hakata Yamakasa from inside Kushida Shrine. I had been to Yamakasa before but to be able to see it from inside the shrine was a completely different experience.

IMG_1471.jpg IMG_1473.jpg IMG_1441.jpg

We arrived at the shrine around 2:30 the intensity level was amazing, there were tons of people of all ages. The next generation of Yamakasa participants were also in attendance.
It was a ton of fun and if you haven`t seen Yamakasa yet I definitely suggest you do!

井原、雷山ツアー

Iwarayama and Raizan tour

IMG_1384.jpg
Hi everybody, how was your hot weekend??
The rainiy season is definitely over and now is time to go play outside. Last weekend we did the Iwarayama, Raisan loop from Saga. There was a really nice breeze at the summits and the trail was mostly in the shade so even though it was hot it was still a really nice hike. There were also so Mountain Azaleas still blooming.


みんなこんにちは!皆さんの暑い週末はどうでしたか?
梅雨は完全に終わって、アウトドアシーズンになりましたね。
週末は佐賀の井原山、雷山のループ状のコースに行ってきました。山頂はいい風が吹いていて、山道もほとんど日陰で、気温は高かったけど意外と涼しかったよ。山ツツジがまだ咲いていてビックリしました。

Now with the humidity rising comes the summertime bugs and here are a few pictures of the friends we met on the way.

蒸し暑い季節が始まると同時に、山の虫たちも出てきました。

One the second day we found a really nice and cool waterfall and pool so we could cool down and rest our feet before we finished the hike.

2日目のツアーはすごく涼しくて、気持ちいい滝を見つけました。その日のハイクが終わる前に滝の下の水たまりに足をつけてクールダウンしました!

Hey everyone, how have you all been doing? This week has been quite crazy with a lot of running around, but also getting a lot done at the same time. One thing that I worked on is an article for the August issue of Fukuoka Now. The topic is the hiking around the Okue hiking area in Northern Miyazaki.

皆さんこんにちは。みんな元気?
最近結構いそがしかったけど、いろいろ出来上がりました。その中の1つは、8月のFukuoka Nowに出るのが決まったことです!!それが今回のトピックです。

We went down last Monday to take pictures for the article and the weather was great, the hiking was great, and the view was the greatest! Be sure to check out the August issue when it comes out. Also for anyone who`s interested Amarok is running a tour to this area during the 19th~21st long weekend. There is still room on this tour so if you`re interested please drop me an email or a phone call.

先週宮崎の大崩山のそばまで行きました。梅雨だったんだけど、天気はよく青空でした。7月末にFukuoka Nowが出ますので是非見てください。
大崩はとてもきれいな場所で、7月の三連休(19~21日)にキャンプツアーをしますので興味のある方は、是非連絡下さい!!
