YOU MUST BE SIGNED-UP ON THE OFFICIAL PAGE TO JOIN: https://www.tokyosnowclub.com/trips/2019-06-29/okutama-white-water-rafting.html This Trip Features: * White water rafting in beautiful Okutama! * Easy day trip - just over 1hr direct train from Tokyo * Short riverside hike * Visit to the local riverside Sake Brewery Rafting in Japan is one of the most fun and exciting ways to escape the city, spend time outdoors and refresh yourself in beautiful natural surroundings. You dont need any previous experience and all equipment is provided. During our Okutama rafting trips we meet at Mitake Station (90min direct train from Shinjuku) and walk together along the river to the rafting base. After getting changed and equipped we spend the morning heading down stream on the rafts, battling the rapids along the way! Its six people per raft so its also a great way to meet people as you work together to master the river. After a fun morning on the river we take a short riverside stroll to the local sake brewery where we can have lunch by the river and try some of the fantastic local rice wine on offer. There is also the option to visit one of the local hot springs as well before heading back to Tokyo.

Climb Mt Fuji!

Shinjuku

A weekend trip to climb the mighty Mt. Fuji - the tallest and most iconic mountain in Japan! YOU MUST SIGN UP ON THE OFFICIAL TRIP PAGE LINKED BELOW TO JOIN: https://www.tokyosnowclub.com/trips/2019-07-06/climb-mt-fuji.html (日本語案内は以下のページでご覧できます): https://www.tokyosnowclub.com/jp/trips/2019-07-06/climb-mt-fuji.html The official climbing season for Mt Fuji lasts for only a few months, from July to early September. The trek to the summit is extremely popular and is completed annually by around 250,000 people! Reaching the summit of this incredible mountain leaves an unbeatable feeling of achievement and the spectacular views are well worth the hike. Our hike will be timed so that we will reach the summit before the sunrise, catching the first rays of sunlight from the highest point in Japan while the rest of the country sleeps! There are several different approaches to climb Mt. Fuji. We will be taking the Yoshida trail starting at the Kawaguchiko 5th station (2305m). It is an intermediate level climb to the summit, which depending on your pace, will take 5 to 8 hours. The trail is approximately 6km long with an elevation change of around 1500m. While it is considered an intermediate level course, the Kawaguchiko trail is a suitable trail for all ages and all levels of experience. There is no actual climbing required, just hiking, but there are some steep parts where you need to use your hands. We will be taking the hike nice and easy to allow us to aclimatize to the alititude and reserve our energy. We plan to reach the summit around 3:30am, where we can rest and get a good spot to view the sunrise. There are a few huts at the summit that serve some hot dishes and are open from around 3:30am. A good chance to enjoy breakfast on top of the world! There is also an optional hike all the way around the crater at the summit of Mt. Fuji that takes around 1hr to complete. The descent from the summit takes a slightly different trail for some of the way and is quicker than the climb up, taking around 3 to 4 hours. You will never look at Mt. Fuji the same way again after having climbed to the top. This is definitely a must do for anyone living in or visiting Japan. Hope you can join us!
