Solo Hike in Saga: Kinryusan 金立山 and a few others (Hinokumayama 日の隈山, Shogendake 正現岳 and Kanashikishiyama 金敷城山) 2020.10.10

Solo Hike in Saga: Kinryusan 金立山 and a few others (Hinokumayama 日の隈山, Shogendake 正現岳 and Kanashikishiyama 金敷城山) 2020.10.10

After a few weeks visiting some really impressive Volcanoes in Kumamoto and Kagoshima/Miyazaki I decided to stay closer to home as a typhoon seemed to bring unpredictable weather (I was thinking of Kaimondake but I will go back there in November sometime it will quite the mission!) So I went to Saga and explored the mountains in this area. 

I first explored a small park "Hinokuma Park 日の隈公園" Which also had a small called Hinokumayama 日の隈山. It had nice views and was quite easy. A good one for families I think.

After that I headed for Kinryu park 金立公園-金立山いこいの広場 and the starting point for Kinryuyama. The park has great facilities and also historic sites. I started on up to Seigeninaka Shrine and then on up to Shogendake 正現岳 and Kinryusan 金立山. I ate lunch overlooking the mountains a great place for a break. After this I decided to head to Kanashikishiroyama 金敷城山 (long name in English!) and then down to Saga. On the way down I passed to cute lady hikers who screamed when they saw me! They thought I was a wild boar! Do I look like a pig...haha. Luckily on the way I found an Onsen Amadi. This is the same company as I have used in Haruda however this one didn't have a bus to the station and some of the baths your out of order. I think it is overpriced and they should consider making it cheaper. Then a long, long walk to Saga station.

I don't recommend the route I use on my Solo hikes as I like to go off trail and explore a lot but I do think Kinryusan is a great hike and well worth it!
