Hike Tsukubasan (筑波山) !

Mt.Tsukuba Protected content is a symbol of Ibaraki Prefecture.
It’s described as “East Fuji” and “West Tsukuba”.
The mountain is also one of the日本百名山(100 Best See Mountains in Japan). You can definitely see the superb view on the top.

We hike from the Protected content and eat lunch together at the restaurant on the top. From the hillside to the top are within the shrine area and protected under the National Park Law, so you can see the beautiful nature and enjoy the fresh air of the forests. The shrine itself has many designated cultural artifacts so worth visiting.

Beginners are all welcome!

The mountain has an old history and many legends, and those folklore has been inherited as of today .Since its opening, the mountain has been barriered by the Shrine and seen as a holy mountain and divine entity. (The gate of the shrine symbolically marks the transition from the mundane to the sacred.)

It is about 4 hours hike. Please bring nice walking shoes, drinks for hydration, and handy meal to supply your energy.
I recommend that you eat properly before hiking:)

We will take a bus departing at 10 am from Protected content so please don’t get late. We will soon buy a bus ticket one by one after gathering.
Checking your train timetable beforehand and taking plenty o your time to get on the train are much appreciated.
As we are the group, restaurant menus are three and we order them around one-third each to your preference. If anyone who is a vegetarian or a vegan, please let me know.
Mountain weather is changeable, it won't rain but if you have a rain jacket, please bring them with a towel.
And the bus fee for one way is Protected content , you can pay by IC card or by cash.
