#1: Sign-pole built 21-Aug-2005.

(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

25-Jun-2006 -- This is my second visit to this point. The first visit was on 7-Sep-2005. It was rain and was too dark to take fine photo.

This time, it was just after a small shower, but no problem to take photo.

This point was already visited by many people, so let me introduce a new sign pole. The text on the pole said It had been built 21-Aug-2005. This meant it was already there when I visited last year, but I had not noticed it. There was a note also to write a record of visit.

I took four pictures based on this mark(pic. #2-#5). But my GPS indicates N37.00.00.2 E140.00.01.00 here (Pic. #6). I have no way to judge which is correct.

I moved to west about 20 meters, then my GPS got zero values (pic. #7). It was where I have visited last year. I have no way to judge which is correct, but I doubt the point the sign-pole built.

I have checked the pictures took by previous visitors, they seem to indicate the point 20 meters east from the monument. My picture taken this point were almost the same as previous visitor's.

If I have a chance to call the organisation who built the sign-pole, I'd like to confirm and solve my question.
