Meeting point and time: Hankyu Ashiyagawa station 13:00

We'll follow the interesting hiking course up through the Rock Garden to 'Kazefukuiwa' rock, from where we'll have fantastic views out over Osaka Bay. Here we'll enjoy some hot mulled wine and snacks before completing the circular hike down to Okamoto. Dinner is optional and will be at the popular Thai restaurant 'Kuwanchai' in Okamoto. 

If you're unable to join the hike but would like to join only for dinner, that'll be fine, but advance reservation is necessary.

Dinner will be from 17:00 until approximately 19:30 and will cost approximately 2,000 yen, depending on what you order.

What to bring: hiking shoes and warm clothes, gloves and hat, waterproof (Gortex) clothing, drinking water, hiking sticks (optional), a cup and plate.
