A morning hike in Chikushino city. We hiked up Nitayama and then to Miyajidake. The route was overgrown in many places and there were large cobwebs over the trail. Luckily we had hiking poles to get rid of the webs and help clear away the vines over the trail. As we started the hike some old people playing gate ball shouted to warn us of Mamushi. We didn't see any snakes but the large horse flies were a constant nuisance! A nice trail but it may be better to do it after the summer. Here is the map we used made by the Chikushino local goverment. https://www.city.chikushino.fukuoka.jp/data/open/cnt/3/7109/1/miyadidake.gaidobook.pdf?20200217093342
