Monthly Hike    hiker

The Vancouver Mokuyokai Society hikes approximately once a month. In addition to enjoying the beautiful scenery that BC offers, it is an opportunity to meet others. The summer hikes tend to be longer and more challenging than the winter ones. We also go snowshoeing in the winter.

Elk Mountain

The hike is usually on the 3rd or 4th weekend of every month.

• There is no hiking fee for members. The cost for non-members is $10. We usually car-pool to the hike location, and there is a small fee to cover the cost of gas that is paid to the drivers. This cost is dependant on distance and is usually between $7-$10.

Please Note:
• The hikes are of varying degrees of difficulties, and it is the responsibility of the participants to verify that they have the appropriate fitness level and equipment to complete the hike safely.
• The hike captain will be happy to provide information about the hike and the requirements for it. The hike captain has the option to refuse participation to those that they feel are not properly equipped to complete the hike safely.
• Adventure Smart ( has recommendations for what to bring on a hike.

DinnerKai (dinner event)l2

The Dinnerkai is generally held every second month. DinnerKai is a fun social event where we try different Japanese restaurants that serve quality food but not at outrageous prices.

We usually hold the Dinnerkai at Japanese restaurants but we might try other cuisines as well and members are encouraged to submit restaurant ideas. The number of participants is limited so please RSVP early!
