YOUR HOST

Takayoshi KAWAI

I’ve always been interested in the outdoors even as a child, and love hiking and camping. When I was young I was even a member of the Cub Scouts! I began climbing mountains more seriously about 10 years ago. We Japanese just love climbing mountains; it’s in our blood. Climbing Mt Fuji was especially important to me (though I ended up with altitude sickness). I stopped climbing mountains for a number of years, but still had my old equipment and enjoy going on hikes. I fell in love with the 360 degree view that you can experience from the top of a mountain. A lot has happened in my life, believe it or not I used to be your everyday salaryman. Then one day I decided to take the plunge and do what I want, which lead me to me opening my own BBQ restaurant! We only live once right? I think it’s important to do what you want in life.

WHAT TO EXPECT

This family friendly hiking tour of Mt. Tsukuba is great for all ages (even kindergarten children!) as the mountain is easily climbable. The event accommodates up to 8 people and is an all day affair. Make sure to bring water, appropriate shoes, clothing that is easy to move around in, and rain gear just in case. There is a cable car to get up the mountain faster, but it comes with a fee. Once at the top of the mountain you’ll be greeted by a stunning view of the sprawling Kanto Plains, and weather permitting you will even be able to see Tokyo Tower off in the distance. Even if it’s an overcast day, fear not as you will be able to gaze upon the spectacular sea of clouds blanketing the countryside. After climbing the mounting and working up an appetite it’s time to head over the host’s BBQ restaurant for spare ribs and other meaty delights. A delicious end to a hearty day!

  • The host will pick you up at the station and take you to the mountain.

  • Enjoy chatting with the host during the trek!

  • The view from the top on a clear day is breathtaking.

  • Stop by a shrine and then relax your muscles in a "sento" bath house.

  • When you're feeling refreshed, make your way to the host's steakhouse.

  • The host will prepare a delicious meal for you featuring his popular BBQ pork spare-ribs!

    ※The menu may change depending on the dates.
