Akagi Hike 2019
September 22 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
It’s the return of GAJET’s Akagi Hike! Akagi is of the 日本百名山 (“Nihon Hyakumeizan”), *the* 100 Mountains of Japan, but even more magnificently, is one-third of Gunma’s own 上毛三山 (“Jomo Sanzan”), *the* Three Jomo Mountains. Join us for an Akagi adventure!
🕘 9:00–9:30 Meet-up time at Komagatake Trailhead Parking Lot ( 駒ヶ岳登山口駐車場)
The hike is estimated to take about 4 hours. We’ll break for lunch at the summit. 🍙🥪🍎
