Mount Unzen has always been a very popular hiking destination. But after the 1990's eruptions, the trails were temporarily shut down for repairs. I mean heck, there was a brand new peak on the mountain now! After finishing some major restruction and repairs, they recently reopened the mountain to the public. Lucky for us!
So that leads us to my adventure with some other ALTs from Kyushu. We drove out to Nagasaki on December 12th, bright and early. To get there from Kumamoto, it takes a fairy ride and lots of driving.
