Trip 1: Bogatsuru Camping trip with the H Plus store Fukuoka

This was a really fun event with a lot of people new to overnight camping coming along for a really good time. We started from the Chojabaru parking area and after loading up all of our gear we headed out along the Ame ga Ike trail to the Bogatsuru campground.

Most of the members were new to camping and not used to carrying that much gear but everyone dug deep and did really well and were still in good enough spirits that after we reached the campground and setup our tents headed off to climb Mt. Taisen for an afternoon adventure.

Before heading into their tents for their first night camping out we chatted around a small campfire and did some stargazing as the sky was nice and clear.

The next morning after a relaxing wake up we packed up our gear and hiked back, stopping off to enjoy some delicious Dango jiru at the Chojabaru parking area before heading home. It was a really fun tour and I really enjoyed seeing the happy faces of the newly initiated overnight campers.

Our next H Plus hike will be held on the 8th of September when we are going to hike the moonscape of Mt. Aso area.

Trip 2: Mt. Nuki Tour

The day after coming back from the H Plus camping trip we were right back at it, this time travelling north to the Kitakyushu area to hike up Mt. Nuki. This mountain is in the Hiraodai area of Kitakyushu and is littered with fields a beautiful Karst topography caused by carbonic acid carried by rainwater.

Today the weather was really nice and provided us with a really nice view from the top as we sat and relaxed before heading down.

Another common feature of Karst fields is the formations of underground caves and after working up a sweat on the mountain we decided to cool off by heading into one of the cave systems that has been setup as a tourist attraction.

We travelled almost 1km underground and not only did we cool off we got cold but it was a ton of fun!

Trip 3: Nansho ga Taki summer hike

Usually this route is one of our most popular winter hikes when we hike up to see the frozen waterfall but the last time I hiked up here we met a local man who told me about a really cool lesser known route that meanders past another beautiful waterfall down a different valley, so we decided to go and check it out.

We stopped along the ridgeline for lunch before heading down the new trail. The trail down was not that well developed with only a few taped trees marking the way, but that along with a topo map and GPS as backup we managed to stay along the trail.

The trail headed down the ridge and where 2 streams converged just as the old man said was a really beautiful waterfall. This trail was a lot of fun and I think we’ll also have to check this one out in winter too!

It's been a great summer so far with no signs of slowing down for the time being. Stay tuned for the next update soon!
