September 24-26 Hiking around Tokyo
Am looking for someone or a small group to do hikes in areas outside of Tokyo together as I have very bad sense of direction yet love to be in the nature...
I am from Hong Kong and am a frequent hiker back home here and I often hike with guys. I look for people who can hike in similar pace as me.

Hi, I am Anita, also from Hong Kong too. I plan to hike Mt. Takao on 24 Sept and want to find someone to go with me. Actually I am searching any hiking group on that day. Hoping to go with a group instead of hiking alone.
If you like, we can talk about it.
Hi, I'm from Australia and will be arriving in Tokyo on the 21 Sept. Would be interested in hiking with some people between 22-24 September. Give me a shout if anyone is interested.
Bianca and June, if both of you are free on 24 Sep(mon) and are interested in hiking Mt. Takao, we can join together. I plan to arrive Takaosanguchi Station (Keio Line+Takao Line)【高尾山口站-京王線+高美線】at 9am and hike for trail 6, it should take less than 3.5 hours to finish. From some sources of info, hiking up takes 90minutes , going down takes 70minutes.
Actually , I found that there is a volunteer hiking guide association, I contacted this association and am waiting for the confirmation of a Mt. Takao volunteer hiking guide, who lives around Mt. Takao I believe. If this guide is okay, he will lead us to hike.
I would be happy to meet up at that time on the 24 Sept. Maybe we can exchange contacts outside of this forum.
Sure, I will meet the volunteer guide at 9:30am on 24 Sep at Takaosanguchi Station to have that hike.
How can we exchange contact outside Kanpai? They don't allow us to mention our email /social media account .
I'm not quite sure how we can exchange details here. Perhaps we can identify each other at the station with a certain colour we're wearing? I'm staying in Ueno near the Okachimachi station so will be taking the train from there to Takaosanguchi Station.
I will wear a white tee with green sports trousers on 24 Sep.
Actually, 2 hiking guides will lead us to Mt Takao, they are from TENGU Takao-san English Volunteer Guide Club. They will take a flag showing the club name on that day I think. You can browse through the website using "TENGU Takao-san English Volunteer Guide Club".
Even you can't find me, you can find them
See you soon.
Are you still going ahead with the hike? It's forecast rain much the entire day.
Yes, still go hiking, the guides did not cancel the hike yesterday. It's only rain sometimes.
Remember to bring some food and drinks for hiking. I am going out now, will arrive at Takaosanguchi Station at 9am , earlier.
The guides will hold a flag "Tengu"
See u soon.
Okay see you soon!
