#1: Overview of the confluence from 25 meters east

(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

20-Apr-2007 -- I parked my car at the point where 510 meters away from the target.

I started to walk on the paved road to the south. I could reach the point which was 125 meters to the target. I went into the re-entrant to the west and started to climb up the slope.

But last 40 meters, the slope was covered with thick vegetation, so that it took more than two minutes to climb up and went ahead 1 meter. After thirty minutes fighting, I gave up to close more. My GPS indicated that it was 20 meters to the target.

It was the hardest point to reach I have ever experienced in Japan.
