#1: North from the confluence

(visited by Toshiyuki Tsubouchi and kenji maruyama)

08-Feb-2009 -- We visited 40N140E confluence point by running about 14km from Hachirogata station under the heavy freezing head wind and light snow on slippery road. The day before, we had run from Oga station to Oga hot spring town about 46km along seashore. At first we had intended to run from Oga hot spring town to the point, but the night before we had thunder storm and snow, so we changed our schedule.

Since shortest course was blocked by channel, we had to take a roundabout course.
