韓国岳日帰りツアー

Interesting day with Murphy in Miyazaki

Karakuni 201008 (8)
A beautiful sunny day in Miyazaki!

Hey everyone, last Saturday we spent the day on Mt. Karakuni on the Ebino Plateau of Miyazaki. The weather report was for cloud in the morning but clearing up by lunch. So with high hopes of catching the breathtaking view from the summit we headed out in the wee hours of the morning.

After coming out of the last 6km tunnel on the highway we caught our first glimpse of our destination. “アラッ!!” I said as I saw the summit hidden by clouds of a darker colour than I had expected, and as we reached to starting point of the hike, once again, “アラッ!!”, it started to rain, and the wind picked up too!It was just a light rain, like when you`re in a heavy mist, but still not what we had been expecting. Anyway we continued on toward the summit.

Team Jet from Kagoshima and the fleeting glimpses of blue sky at the summit!

Along the way we ran into a group of Gaijin girls who are with the JET program in Kagoshima and we all walked together chitchatting as we reached the summit. It was almost noon and at least the rain had stopped but no sign of the clouds burning off with the exception of fleeting moments of blue sky.

Heading down to the hut where we ate outside and Mana found a great place!

An executive decision was made to change our original route and head down to the hut in the valley between Mt. Karakuni and the Onami crater. The Kagoshima team also followed us too! Just as we reached the hut area the weather cleared and we had a clear view of the summit, I`m sure Murphy had a good laugh!

While enjoying our lunch the summit FINALLY cleared and we gave us a nice view

The day turned out different then was planned and it was unfortunate that we couldn`t see the view from the top which is the trademark of this area, but it was still a really fun day with really good people!

On the way down we talked about our Karakuni “Revenge” tour. Once we decide on the dates I`ll post it on the schedule and if your free please join us for a fun time, no matter what the weather!!

"Mana where ya going?", wait! thats a deer! Look at the weather after we got down! I`m sure Murphy was sitting at the summit laughing his ass off!

TNF 琵琶湖イベント

Lake Biwa Kayak Event

IMG_1416.jpg

Last weekend I helped out Matsumoto San from Southern Works Kayaking service conduct a Kayaking event sponsored by “The North Face” store. We packed up Matsumoto San`s Prado with all the gear and Kayaks we`d need and set off on our road trip Friday afternoon.

Joining us on our journey was Matsumoto San`s wife and 1 and a half year old daughter “Yu chan”, ちょ~かわいい!!

After a few stops along the way we arrived at the shores of Japan`s biggest lake and quickly set up camp before heading off to sleep. The next day we woke to beautiful weather but strong winds and high waves which unfortunately made us cancel the first day of the event as everyone coming was new to Kayaking. So Saturday was completely free so we headed off to Tsuruta city in nearby Fukui Prefecture to scarf down some “Sauce Katsu” at a well known place. Yum Yum, it was gooooood!

That night there was a fireworks display and “Matsuri” in the village we were staying in so we had a great time, the fireworks were so close they were almost right over our heads! Ose san, thanks for the yummy yakisoba!

The next morning the waves were still high but today instead of cancelling the event we decided to hold a BBQ and if we saw an opening we could hop in the Kayaks and head out. In the early afternoon we saw our chance and headed out for a quick paddle, we couldn`t go as far as we wanted due to the wind but everyone had a fun experience and a delicious BBQ afterward.

After all the customers headed home we packed up our camp and set off for Kobe City to spend the night and the house of the manager of “The North Face” store in Kobe before heading off for the trip home the next day.

It was a great trip and I can`t wait to go again next year! Anyone want to come along? Our next day hike will be on the 21st of August. I`ll announce the destination in the next couple days but let me know if you want to join us as there are still a few spots open.

Happy Trails!!
