#1: General view of the conference

(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

17-Nov-2005 -- The purpose of this visit is taking photos requested by the project. My previous visit on 9-May-2005 was classified as INCOMPLETE not to satisfying the photo requirement.

After 21 hours 1300Km driving, I came back here again, it is 388 meters North from the target point. At first I checked the triangular point, measured 33.00.11.1626N 131.00.04.0304E, it is 362 meters to the point. I had to walk into the forest crossing trench, path, dry ditch with fighting.  The problem was GPS wave lost in the forest. It was cloudy and wave condition seemed to be bad. After a while it became fine, and GPS started to catch the wave well. I could locate the position with 11 meter accuracy. My GPS did not show exact zero-value, but I contented this result.
