#1: Around the confluence

(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

10-Jul-2006 -- It was rain today. According to my map, the confluence was in a forest or a bush along a mountain stream.

I chosen a small path along the power line for the entry of this visit. After passing pylons, the path faced a pond and another path guided me to the confluence. At the third pond, the path ended, so I leave the path and went into right side forest. Contouring to north, I reached the end of small stream. It was almost the confluence. There was no special sign made by previous visitors. After taking photo, I followed the stream to the third pond, and found that it was easy than contouring the hillside.
