Hiwada Mountain 日和田山

Friday, April 8th, was a day I was able to go on a hike with the grade seven teachers and students.  We took the train from Higashi Kurume to Koma and began our hike at Hiwada Mountain.

 Here are a couple of interesting statues by the Koma train station.  Having grown up in British Columbia, my first thought was totem pole!  :)

We began our nine kilometer hike at the station.  

Heading on up!
A panoramic view at the top of the first uphill climb.

The view while I was eating lunch.

Three of our fearless leaders!

Looks like a city there between the trees!

Mr. Van Dam's Homeroom 
Mrs. Norton's Homeroom 
There were a few beautiful blossoms along the way.

That's what we climbed!
It was a great hike, although I can feel it in some of my muscles today, the day after.  It was a great field trip and I am glad that we are looking to developing a program in the Middle school related to exploring this country through different hikes.  It is a great way to get out of the classroom to see and experience God's world!
