井原~雷山ツアー

Ihara~Raizan Loop

IMG_0394.jpg

Hey again everyone, how was your weekend? We had a great trip out to the Saga and Fukuoka border area on one of my favorite looping hikes, the Mt. Ihara~Raizan trail. This trail is known for its tunnels of beautiful of Mitsuba Azaleas blossoms that surround the path. But not this time as the cold spring we are having has put off the season by a couple weeks, but even without the blossoms it`s still a great hike!

When I looked at the weather report the night before it said that it was going to be sunny with no chance of rain, so boy was I surprised to wake up to really cloudy skies and it even started to rain when we got close to the start of the hike which made us all think “Uh-Oh!”

Luckily the rain was over quickly and as we got close to the top of Ihara the clouds lifted a bit and the sun started to peek though making for a really great day and a really great view! After a short photo break at the top of Mt. Ihara we headed off for the top of Raizan.

The trail from Ihara to Raizan is actually a section of a much longer trail runs all the way from Kiyama to Raizan and apparently even further to the Karatsu area. Let`s do that trip someday soon! Anyway, the hike between the two mountains was wonderful with views of both Fukuoka and Saga peaking though the unleaven trees. Unfortunately just as I expected the azaleas weren`t quite blooming yet but some of the buds were doing their best to push through.

We reached the top of Raizan with tired legs and hungry bellys ready for a yummy lunch. Luckily todays lunch was nabe because with the movement of the clouds the warm temperature would drop suddenly giving us a chill. After lunch it was a quick descent down to the road where we found some Sakura still in bloom as we made our way back to the truck.

What are your plans for Golden week? We have a camp tour running to Kunimi Dake in Kumamoto on the 4th and 5th. If you`re looking for a little escape from the city drop me an email as there are still a few spots open!
