Highlights

 
     

    Kozushima is a volcanic island that belongs to the Izu Islands, located 188 km away from Tokyo city. On this 3-day trip we’ll hike around Mt Tenjo, one of the main attractions in the island.

    Mt Tenjo is one of Japan’s top hundred famous peaks. It’s also a great view point of Mt Fuji, whose perfect conical shape can be seen in fine days.

    Around the summit of Mt Tenjo there’s a white sandy desert and a pond. Besides, beautiful flower blossoms and alpine plants will be part of the landscape.

    After hiking, we’ll enjoy Onsen and local seafood cuisine.

    How to get to Kozushima island
    • By boat: I propose to meet at Takeshiba Pier, Hamamatsu-cho (Tokyo) and take a boat. We’ll depart by night and get to the island after 12 hours.
    • By plane: However, if you’re not comfortable with the boat ride, you can to take an air flight and meet us at the airport in Kozushima.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I was born in 1971 in Tokyo. My parents used to bring me to the mountains in my childhood, and when I was big enough for a high school, I started to go to the mountains myself and continued since then.

    I have been guiding in the Japanese mountains full time since 2005, and I guide all year around. I love to share my time and take my clients up to summits of classic mountains to less known beautiful mountains, as long as it is in Japan!

    Personally, I'm a keen rock climber, sawanobori practitioner (climbing up streams and waterfalls), and particularly passionate about mountains on islands. I actually love the nature in general, and love the sea as much as I love the mountains.

    I am a fully certified guide with JMGA (Japan Mountain Guide Association) Hiking Level 2 qualification, as well as am a Nagano Prefecture's Official Mountain Guide - meaning that I know my the history, fauna and flora of local mountains very well.
    I am not fluent in English but I communicate with some English mixed with body language!
