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.

Dscf5356s Dscf5357s 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.

Dscf5373s Dscf5376s 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.

Dscf5451s 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.
