The Way to Go: By camping-car around Kyushu

Hike 'n See Fukuoka
is now working together with 3seven77
A local Camping-car (RV) rental place.

Because we are great believers in:

  1. RV-ing means you have your own transport: Come and go as you please. No suitcase dragging...
  2. RV-ing: enjoy the real Japan in a relaxing way. No time-tables.
  3. RV means you can visit unspoiled locations & Kyushu's great nature. Go to locations public transport can not take you.
  4. RV-ing means: See the sights, not the tourists. There is more than Kyoto and Tokyo!
  5. RV-ing means: easier to meet the locals and true Japanese culture.

February Sojourns part 2, Mt Raizan and early blooming sakura

Hiking Mt Raizan in Itoshima, Fukuoka.


  Still wintery and cold but the weather forecast was good 
so no excuse not to go.
We parked at this spacious car-park, what is more or less at the end of the road.
And it has a super clean toilet.
Hey, this is Japan.


 Start of the trail.




 Last water-fill station.





Fresh frost (frozen mist) on the branches.


At the top, time for a hot cuppa.




 Ouch, part of this mountain road got washed away.
But repairs are being made.. it looks like a few-weeks job.

Raizan is famous for Sennyojin Temple and its amazing garden.
A must visit.




Spring is around the corner..
...as early sakura blooming.



"kawatsu sakura"


 Fukuoka Tower is peeping from underneath.

February Sojourns part 1

 Welcome, welcome, welcome.

Here comes a series of 3 updates 
what Hike n See did and saw in February.
Yep, the coldest month of the year...
but it's also the turn-around of the winter towards spring.
Yeah...


   First of All, this maneki neko (fortune cat).
Found her in a display at Mamushi Onsen in Itoshima
She was hand made by an 84 year old lady.
And indeed February brought us good health...
 and (some) fortune :-)

We had some snow the other day...
so time to enjoy a white hike!












After enough picture taking & absorbing of the scenery 
...it was down the trail..
and spearheading for that Mamushi Onsen.

Not a bad day at all.

And true, only a few days later...




An amazing day, weather-wise for sure...
so it was time to hike Mt Iimori
Just at our backyard.


Fukuoka 
with in the center Momochi area with of course, 
Fukuoka Tower.



 Serious Blooming Plum


Wishing Notes 
like these can be found at many temples.


Same can be said about awesome & huge cedar trees.
Boy can they tell tall stories...


 it's just a problem finding a fitting grass-skirt for them...
