(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

06-Nov-2006 -- This area is called Echizen coast and well-known with crab and daffodil. The target was 1.5Km away and 470 meters height from the sea. My car driving up a narrow paved road in steep hill and I reached the point where 260 meters to the target. I could not drive forward because the road was broken with landslide. I walked over the landslide and entered small path, then I reached nearest point on the path. It was 105 meters to the point. The forest was not well maintained, so it was difficult to climb up. After quarter hours fight, I could reach the confluence. It started to rain and get dark, so it was hard to take photo of GPS screen.

A shower comes quickly, so I was completely sodden.
