“Anohana” Themed Hiking Courses Debut in Japan

Campaign runs until Nov. 30

As part of its annual “Free Hiking” series of themed hikes, the Chichibu Railway company of Saitama, Japan has just announced a new series of hikes based on the anime series “Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day.” Hikers on the courses will stop by 34 sacred sites.
 
 
Anohana,” a story about friendship and conflict between 6 main characters, was famously set in around the Chichibu area of Saitama, and while it was broadcasting lots of fans went to the real-life city to check out the sacred sites. This summer, a theatrical version of the anime will be released.

 

 

The hiking courses are beginner-friendly, winding around 7 small hills in the area. Each course costs 160 yen, and participants who finish a course receive a badge. The badges can be affixed to a tapestry, which is completed when all 7 badges are attached.

 

Both the entrance tickets and the badges have illustrations of characters from the anime. The hikes will run until November 30.
