09-May-2005 -- This point was located in north side of gradual foot of the rim of Mt. Aso's large caldera.
After 1,300Km driving from my home, I arrived at Kikuchi canyon located 5.1Km west from the target. The road named Kikuchi-Aso skyline guided me to closer area.
Target was 300 meter away from the road.
First I attacked the triangular point, measured 33.00.11.1626N 131.00.04.0304E. I could find it easily from with 60 meter walk from roadside.
I used GPS and compass to attack the target directly. After 310 meter walk in the ceder forest, the GPS showed almost zero.
After returning the car, I visited another point. It was 33N 131E based on Tokyo Datum. A big monument was built there. Tokyo Datum was common in 20 century in Japan, and most of degree monument was there.
My wife was waiting in a car again.
