We leave Hankyu Ashigawa station at 9am and within 30 minutes arrive at the entrance of the mountain that just for it self it’s a very beautiful view with the Kouza Waterfall. At noon we get at the top of the mountain and the guide will provide a Ramen, on our way we will stop at several shops and points with panoramic view of the cities of Kobe, Osaka and the ocean. A rock climbing (that doesn’t require any equipment), a breath taking mountain view space, safe and sound forests, some very fun river crossing and all along the way we can enjoy a very nice, clean and fresh air. On our way back around 2pm we arrive at the Arima Onsen, one of the most famous land marks in japan, very popular place within the Japanese and travellers (a tattoo friendly hot spring) after we can get a beer, drinks and traditional Japanese snacks on the neighbourhood. After the mountain climbing with the amazing views the hot spring, the snacks, beer and drinks are extremely relaxing. Leaving at 4pm we would be back at 5pm at Umeda station. During the entire journey we can stop and enjoy the experience so no one will miss a thing. Beginners and experienced mountain climbers can feel the joy as the same.
I’m a Japanese born raised in Osaka. Have international music and culture as a passion, have traveled around the world and started mountain climbing as a hobby since junior high school and never stopped. I have a long time experience trekking around the forests and mountains that surrounds Osaka and also very experienced on guiding through these events. Like outdoors activities such as camping and exploring new places and would love to take you with me. I run the most friendly Guest House in the heart of Osaka, close to everything you might need.
