蛤岳ツアーとナビワークショップ

A Full and Fun Saturday

IMG_2494.jpg

This week’s tour took us to Hamaguri Dake a local low lying mountain near Mt. Seifuri. A really pleasant hike through forests of low lying bamboo and stands of cypress that lead to a quiet little mountain top with a huge rock that has been split right down the middle which was aptly named during this week’s tour by Suzuta San as “Butt Rock”, ex-military people all have the same sense of humor!

After lunch we took the secret route back and found a nice rocky area off trail to have coffee and snacks surrounded by nature…..and Dave’s constant burping!

Today’s new English word was “contradiction”, contradiction in Japanese is “Mujyun, 矛盾” and we found a couple funny ones along the way. Can you see the Mujyun from these 3 photos? Just one of the funny moments we had on a great day outside.

The washed out trail had only 1 stick to stop us while the entire toilet has been wrapped 4 times in rope???????

Anyway, after coming back from the hike and getting cleaned up, the first in a series of outdoor skill workshops was held from 21:00. The topic of this workshop was outdoor navigation basically map and compass. We had a pretty good turnout with both kayakers and hikers participating with Matsumoto San from Southern Works directing.

Mie San had never done any map and compass work before but caught on really quick and by the end of the night was really switched on! Way to go Mie!

福智山ツアー

Another Mystical Mountain Adventure

Top_20110405095301.jpg

Last Sunday we decided to brave the Hinoki pollen and head up Mt Fukuchi in Northern Fukuoka Prefecture. We took route up from Kamino so as on our way back we could pass by the HUGE Edohigan Cherry called “Torao”, this is the cherry blossom season after all!

The route up was short but steep but over quick enough not to leave any permanent damage. As we reached the summit we found that we had picked a great day to come here as the was a Yama Biraki being held by a local group.

A “Yama Biraki” is a religious ceremony held to appease the god of the mountain for a safe year for hikers and people who love in the area.

There was a group of about 10 people performing the ceremony including a cute 2 year old boy who knew what he was doing and when to bow!

After the ceremony we scarfed down some potoff before heading down, almost straight down, to the see the Torao Cherry which wasn’t yet in total bloom but the upper area was a beautiful pink hue. As we were sitting having coffee a Tanoki passed by us without a second though only turning around to look at us once as if to say `”enjoy your stay!”
