End-of-year hike 2019

Saturday December 7, 2019

Tsukuba san

Difficulty 2 Number of Days 1 Ibaraki


A lot of people signed up already for this hike, but there is a lack of cars. If you can join and have a car, please write Nobu as soon as possible.

It's time for our traditional year-end hike up Tsukuba-san and the party at HS!

At least once a year the Tsukukba Walking and Mountaineering Club goes up our 'own' mountain. The end-of-year hike is fun.

We start walking from the torii at 6-chome and go along the Tsukuba-Michi to get to the Tsukuba-san shrine (20 min), and then head to the summit of Nyotai-san, (female peak).
However depending on the conditions, we may start from the Tsukuba-san shrine.

Difficulty **
Meeting place: short-term car park at the bus station in Tsukuba Centre
Time: 8:45am
Total walking time (without lunch): approx. 4 hours
