The Tsukuba Walking and Mountaineering Club has been organizing walks since 1998. Joining the group is a great way to make friends in Tsukuba and get some good exercise along the way. Walks are organized by the members, so they each have their own flavour. Sometimes extra activities are added to the walks, such as soba-making, indigo dyeing, and parties. Walks are announced on their mailing list a couple of weeks before they happen. The organizer will tell you how difficult the walk is and what you need to bring. There are walks arranged for all different levels of difficulty, so even beginners should feel welcome to join.
Here is the schedule for upcoming walks. Write to the organizers of the walk (through the mailing list) for more information.
