Mt. Ochisan is a 612.8 meter-high mountain which is located on the border between Fukui City and Echizen Town. It is a popular mountain and there is Ochi Shrine, where is believed that Taicho Daishi opened as a place of ascetic practice, on its top. On December 17th, 2017, TAKE02901 participated in “Trail running seminar for beginners Vol.6” (Instructor : Yohei Tanihashi) held in snowy Mt. Ochisan.
