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.

Almost gone for another year

Top_20110628011137.jpg

Well the clouds finally lifted and the rain held back long enough for us to get one last look at the Miyamakirishima Azaleas before they disappear for another year. It was the first event of the year with the H Plus store Fukuoka and it was great to get together with them again for another fun day.

We started off under sunny skies and worked our way up through the forest and actually stopped for lunch at a really peaceful spot along the trail before heading to the top of Mt. Heiji. By the time we hit the summit the clouds had started to come in but stayed high enough for us to have a great view with some late blooming Miyamakirishima adding beautiful colour to the foreground.

We started to feel some rain as we headed down but it only started to really rain during the last 30 minutes of the hike. The good thing about hiking in the rain in Kyushu, one word, ONSEN! It cures everything! And that’s where we headed after we reached the car to put a nice cap on the end of a great day!

Looking forward to our next hike out with H Plus, it’s always a TON of fun!
Stay tuned for more details.

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!
