(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

30-Apr-2008 -- This is my second visit to the point. My first visit was on 7-Jul-2005. At that time, I couldn't manage my old GPS and old camera well in heavy forest , so it was difficult to locate exact point and couldn't take good photos to satisfy the photo requirements.

It was easy to come back to the point. I parked the car at the end of narrow local road, where was only 110 meters to the target. Last time I walked about 15 minutes where I parked the car.

I climbed up almost straightly and after 10 minutes I could reach the point. It was in the Japanese cedar forest. It was better season to walk in the forest in Japan, because the underbrush are now grown well.
