#1: Around the fluence

(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

09-Jul-2006 -- After visiting 39N 140E Confluence this morning, I had 4 hours driving to the east.

To visit this point, I followed a local road numbered 49. According to my map, the point was in the forest between a river and a road.

Crossing the river seemed to be difficult, so I decided to start from road side. The closest point on the road was 200 meters, but it was so hilly, and was not a good point to attack. I started my attack from the field 250 meters south-east of the target. Once I climbed up and followed the ridge to north, then went down at the end of ridge. It was very close to the point. I wondered to get zero values on my GPS screen. The GPS signal seemed to be weak, so I had some difficulty to got them and less GPS error tolerance.
