My trekking route
A blue line shows my walking route. I walked 24.5km and it took 7hours 32minutes with a short break for lunch.
Please refer to the next URL. This is the route that I planned before walking by using ALPSLAB route.
Today(November 23) was a good weather. The today's trail was very tough but I had such a productive day.
-> This is the starting point for climb. 9:40am
This point is 4.8km far from Musashi-Itsukaichi Station.
-> Sometimes I got a nice scenery from the mountain path.
-> At the summit of Usuki Mountain. 11:08am
A mountain path from Utsuki Mountain to Ichimichi Mountain is a ridgeway.
This point is 8.2km far from Musashi-Itsukaichi Station.
-> At the summit of Ichimichi Mountain. 12:12pm
This point is 10.7km far from Musashi-Itsukaichi Station.
It's a good scenic location to take a rest and lunch like that of a picture.
I met a comfortable elder couple at the lunch, we talked about a mountain trekking each other. She was very active lady and he was a nice gentleman. I thought they are a good couple. I took a picture for them as a memory of the meeting on a mountain path.
After a short break for lunch, I walked to Myoou Pass and Jimba Mountain. I took a wrong mountain path because of incorrect understanding of map , so I walked double route before Wada pass about 1.6km 30minute that was a big loss. I arrived at Wada Pass 14:08pm.
I arrived at the summit of Jimba Mountain at 14:26pm. Unfortunately, I could not see Mt. Fuji because of clouds. But, by a happy chance, my walking schedule was as same as my initial plan at the summit of Jimba Mountain.
I increased my walking pace, and walked to the Myoo Pass. I arrived at Myoo Pass 14:55pm.
My first plan was to Sagamiko Station from Myoo Pass. I expected to seeing the lake and walked down hill. But the fact was completely different to my imagination. From the mountain path to Sagamiko lake was covered by a lot of Japanese cedar trees, so I could not see the shape of the lake with the exception of the sun light reflection from the lake.
I arrived at Sagamiko Station 16:17pm. After I arrived at Sagamiko Station, I had a productive feeling. At the mountain entrance of Jimba Mountain, if the weather were not good, I should have quit the plan.
