(visited by Shigeru Shimizu)

07-Nov-2006 -- Several years ago, Tokai-Hokuriku Express way was opened, and Shokawa Inter-Change was made. It is only 4 kilometers to the target. The target was only 50 meters from the road. So I took only 10 minutes to locate the position. It was in the middle of right side slope of well maintained Japanese cedar forest. Several felled tree disturbed my attack. The watershed of Japan Sea and the Pacific was closed. A drop of water at the target would be of Japan Sea. But that of at 5 kilometers south-west would be reach the Pacific. This means it was really the central of Japan mountain chain.
