Oita hiking: Kuju くじゅう連山 from the Makinoto start point in hunt of the colours of Autumn 久住山 中岳 2020/10/18After a long working week we headed to Kuju in Oita prefecture to hike it all out.
We have done this hike many times before but due to the Corona virus it has been over a year since we visited the Makinoto rest house start point. This is a pretty standard hike for Kuju covering the main peaks and the highest point on mainland Kyushu, Kuju Nakadake. We set off at 3am and still the parking area was almost full! No kids on this hike they decided to to do basketball and play games instead!
It's a beautiful area that everybody should visit! I can't wait to head back and camp at Bogatsuru and hike more Kuju mountains!
