What you'll do

Nature in Japan is amazingly rich. Our hike will be at the mountain range in Itoshima, Fukuoka.
The 3 to 4 hour course will take us to a small mountain village, pass rice fields, follow a mountain stream, go through a forest and at the top it will treat us to great views of Itoshima and Fukuoka City.
On the return trip we will make a stop at a very pretty mountain temple.

Yap is knowledgeable and passionate about the great outdoors! He was an excellent guide on this very scenic hike that we would not have found on our own. He gave us a unique view on life in Fukuoka and we would certainly take this experience again!

Yap was not only willing to share all of his local expertise about the Fukuoka area during our hike and excursion, but he introduced us to delicious local snacks (onigiri roll of natto, fermented soybeans) when we were hungry, and when the weather got unexpectedly cold he even gave me a jacket to keep warm!! He's not just a world-traveler with amazing experiences to share -- he's a knowledgable and truly kind person. I couldn't imagine a better host!

This experience exceeded my expectations. Yap was very accommodating and our group did not feel hurried at all. There were a number of stops to just sit and enjoy the view. I felt refreshed more than tired afterwards. We could not have had a better ending to our vacation in Fukuoka!

It was a wonderful time hiking with Yap last weekend. I felt lucky to be greeted by spring blooms as we walked through the village and the mountain. I really enjoyed the route we took as well as the views at the look-outs. I am quite active so I found the hike rather manageable. Yap was also a great and knowledgeable guide who looked out for me, and shared about the things we saw along the way as well as his own stories which were very interesting. He prepared hot tea and light snack which was very nice. All in all, it felt like exploring the woods with a friend, and I highly recommend this experience for you :)
