(visited by Holger Baumgardt)

23-Mar-2004 -- While attending a conference in Nagoya, I decided to visit this confluence since it is quite close to Nagoya despite the fact that it had already been visited. So one morning when the conference program looked rather dull, I took a train to Kariya the nearest station from the confluence. From there I walked to the confluence which is about 1.3 km northwest from Kariya station, zig-zagging my way through the town.

Not many changes since the first visitor came here two years ago. The vending machine and the house are still there and look pretty much unchanged. The exact location of the confluence must be somewhere on the road behind the house or in the house. Sometimes the GPS display showed all zeros while I was on the road, but most of the time the GPS pointed to some point inside the house. After taking pictures in all four directions, I bought a drink from the vending machine and went back to Nagoya. This is a really easy confluence. In the afternoon I had more time to kill so I visited Nagoya castle.
