2014 Mt. Kurikoma Climb
When: October 4 (Sat.); we will start the climb around noon!
Where: Kurikoma Quasi-National Park, the very northwest of Miyagi Prefecture
How much: We do not charge for our professional guide services, but ask that those who will be carpooling contribute some money to their kind drivers.
How should I get there?
For those who cannot drive themselves there, we will be arranging carpools from the nearest train station! (Which is still a considerable 1+ hour drive away - bonding time!)
What should I bring?
Mount Kurikoma is not an extremely rigorous climb, so you will not need hardcore climbing gear. The essentials, however, include:
Come climb Mount Kurikoma with us on a (hopefully) beautiful Saturday morning/afternoon!
This is MAJET's second time organizing a Kurikoma climb (first climb took place in May, when there was still a bit of snow at the top). This time, instead of struggling up a wall of snow, you will get to see the koyo colors (October is claimed by some to be the most beautiful time to climb for this reason).
Part of the Ou Mountains at the very northwest part of Miyagi Prefecture, Mount Kurikoma is actually shared by Miyagi, Akita, and Iwate Prefectures. At a summit height of 1626 m, it takes about 1.5 hours to climb up the mountain (remember that you have to go down as well), so we will be aiming to start at about noon!
