2016 Mt. Kurikoma Climb
When: October 15 (Sat); meet at 10:30!
Where: Kurikoma Quasi-National Park, the very northwest of Miyagi Prefecture
How much: Absolutely 100% free! But if you will be carpooling, contribute some money to your 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. BUT, be prepared for cold-ish weather! It is October after all, and remember: the higher you go, the colder it gets. (Just a friendly Earth science reminder) The essentials include:
Come climb Mount Kurikoma with us on a (hopefully) beautiful Saturday morning/afternoon!
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 before noon!
On the way back, you can relax at a local onsen, or if you must, we will not be offended if you move on to your Saturday night plans!
