A morning climb followed by an afternoon kayaking in Okutama!
This Club Trip features:
* Cablecar and hike to the Mt. Mitake summit
* Visit Shrine, Mt. Village & waterfall along the way
* Afternoon Kayaking in Okutama
* Learn basic Kayaking techniques
We will be leaving from Shinjuku in the morning and travelling to Mitake Station by direct train (80min). From there we will catch the local bus 10min to the base of Mt. Mitake where we will board the cable car. From the top of the cable car it is a 30min, fun and scenic hike to the summit. From the summit you can see the high-rise buildings in Shinjuku in the distance, and as far as Mt. Tsukuba-san in Ibaraki Prefecture. On the path to summit there is one of the oldest shrines in Japan, said to have been built in 90BC.
Mt. Mitake Views
After descending from the Mitake we will have a relaxing lunch by the river before heading to the base of the Kayak centre, Kayaking is a leisurely and fun way to explore the area and stay cool in the summer heat!! After a short safety lecture we will grab our Kayaks and cruise down the river. Instructors will be with us to give advice and tips. We will be doing a beginners course so its fine for first-timers!
After Kayaking we will head to the nearby Onsen to relax before going back to Tokyo. We will time it to catch the train back in time for those who are keen to check out the Tokyo Bay fireworks which are happening that night.
Its going to be a fun day out in Okutama - hope that you can join us!!
