(visited by David Moews)

16-Jun-2005 -- This confluence is in the ocean, approximately 7.5 km from land. This visit was to the coast near the confluence and is therefore incomplete.

According to my GPS, I visited the point 41°57.526' N, 140°55.684' E, and the confluence is 7.52 km away, at an azimuth of 52°. This may be the closest point on land to the confluence; at any rate, the distance appeared to be a local minimum on my GPS. This point is on the northeast coast of southern Hokkaido, about a 90-minute bus ride from Hakodate. It is very close to the intersection of routes 980 and 278; it is also near the Ofune C dig site. This portion of the coast is dotted with fishing towns.
