What I’ll provide
Japanese lunch box
I will provide a hikers "bento lunch" with rice balls, chicken and vegetables. Let me know if you have any food requests.
Bottle of water or tea
Beer is great after we finish our journey. No alcohol permitted during the hike however—Jacksan's rules.

What to bring
Small Daypack 15L - 30L size is good. (I have extra packs if you need!)
One extra long sleeve layer
Cap or warm hat depending on the season
Water Bottle (There is fresh water available on the hike)

Take out lunch or extra snacks if you have special dietary concerns.
