(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

31-Oct-2007 -- According to my previous survey, the point was located in the Golf course named Japan Ace Golf Club. The problem for visiting this point was that I didn't get the permission to enter the golf course. First thing I did was visiting the club reception and asking to give permission to enter the course to visit the target and take photos. But the manager rejected my request immediately, and said I would never get any permission for such request. Of course if I would pay the fee to play golf, I could reach the target point during my play..

I found that the target was on the left side rough of the eleventh hole and it is only 120 meters from course boundary. I decided to try to approach with my own risk. It was already about 4 p.m., so no players in the course. Fortunately the nearest gate was opened to maintain, I could easily reach the target. I did not have enough time to walk around to locate exactly. But it was no problem to complete my job.

Eventually no one noticed me during my intrusion to the course.
