#1: The confluence area

(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

27-Nov-2005 -- I have finished my business in the morning at Nagoya-city, I decided to go to this confluence. I drove Tomei motorway to Hamamatsu interchange and turned to north for Tenryu-city.

This confluence was located in a mountain district between two big famous river, Tenryu-river and Oi-river.

I followed Route 362 and then turned into local road numbered 263. I parked my car at the T-junction, 270 meters away and 90 meters lower from the target. The I started to walk on the paved road and got hight. At the sixth curve, 120 meters from the point, I went into the forest. It was easy approach, because there was a clear trail to the target. At the south-east slope, my GPS indicated the closest value. The time was 14:16. But the value was fluid, and accuracy was not good.

It was in cedar forest and I walk feasibility was good. After taking pictures, I turn back to my car. Then I drive over the hill and turn to south along Oi-river. I needed more than five hours driving to return home.
