    Okutama beer run (day hike ): Hatonosu > Honnita > Okutama

    18-June Day hike in Okutama, Japan
    Temp was not too hot nor muggy and cloudy throughout the day.

    Course


    JR Hatonosu station: pretty crowded at around 8AM






    Unexpected peak marker: Mt. Kobutaka (瘤高山)




    Mt. Honnita

    It reads, Hiker’s Manner:
    - Do not take
    - Do not throw (away)
    - Do not disturb

    Finished with the trail. Cool stream nearby.


    Some photos along the 2.x km road walk to the station










    The goal: VERTERE beer and cafe

    http://verterebrew.com
    Only open on weekends and holidays



    Pint of Rhoeas and fish & chips


    At home with the haul


    By the numbers

    Great hike in a beautiful area. Any hike that ends with great beer and fish n chips has got to be a good one.

    Gotta ask... what is that machine's function?

    Thanks! I had to look up the term and it’s called an agricultural monorail. Used to move goods up steep and rough terrain

    I hardly ever see them in working condition and usually see mangled tracks on the trail instead.

    Very cool!

    Good way to get groceries/supplies to a restaurant or hut up on a ridge. In the White Mtns (NH) they have young, sturdy folks carrying A-frames with 100lb loads...

    Beautiful hike! The trees along the first part of the trail are stunning. I would sit and stare at them for hours. The agriculture monorail is fascinating; I think I would like one for my yard just to ride around. Fish & chips with beer looks delicious!

    Dang what a beautiful hike. The more I see of Japan, the more I want to make it there one day. I love trip reports like this especially with tons of pictures. Thanks!
