#1: Around the confluence

(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

09-Jul-2006 -- The point was middle of newly recreated rice field, but fortunately the target was just on the ridge. According to the first report, there were fields around the point. Probably, the land reforming was done in few years ago.

It was very easy to reach the point. I could park my car side of the road, only 160 meters to the target. So after only two minutes walk, I was at the confluence.
