Mt Fuji Hike

August 11, 2019 | | No Comments

GAJET is taking on the tallest mountain in Japan this summer! The overnight hike will begin on the morning of August 11. After a day of hiking, there will be a cabin waiting for the tired travelers. At midnight, we will continue towards the summit (another 4-5 hour hike) and catch the beautiful sunrise.

Spots are limited to 14 people, so sign up ASAP through the registration form here (click here).

Lodging per person is expected to be around 8,500 yen. After signing up, you will receive information on how to electrically transfer this fee to GAJET (payment for lodging is due by July 5th). Please also note that toilets are 200 yen per use, and that there are no showers available up the mountain.

With summer just around the corner, it’s time again to say farewell to our fellow JETs departing from the programme. Join GAJET and many leaving JETs for our annual Farewell Beer Garden on July 20 from 5:00 pm.

We will be meeting at the rooftop beer garden at the Takashimaya building near Takasaki station (map here).

You are free to come and leave as you please, although we recommend coming early to get the most out of your entry fee (and to say your goodbyes). Entry is 3,000 yen for males and 2,600 for females. This price includes all-you-can-eat and drink!
