A Spring Hike in Mitsuse

Rice fields and forest on the mountainside

Tristan Scholze   - 1 min read

The mountainside village of Mitsuse, a short drive from central Fukuoka City and within the city limits of Saga, provides a welcome, easily accessible, natural haven for travelers and city folk. Enjoy a meal at Café Notch, and take a walk through the village fields and wildflowers, up the sloping mountainside, and into the trees (video). You’ll find streams, ferns, mosses, flowers, songbirds and fresh air under the forest canopy. This relaxed hike is paved all the way until it reaches an access road. There, you can turn right and soon reach a path leading right again to Yamanaka Campground or cross the road and continue up the hiking trail to the peak of Mt. Kana.
