Trek from Mitsumineguchi Station to Chichibu Station

Today(December 20th), I walked from Mitsumineguchi Station to Chichibu Station. It was a walking event of Chichibu Railways. This is a annual event held on the year end. The walking distance is about 20km, so it needed a person who has some physical toughness. I saw so many senior person participated in this event. I thought that they have full of energy and might be finished about 5hr30min ~ 6hours in this course. The course relatively flat except Wakajishi Walking Trail near Chichibu Sakura Lake.
When I saw the plan, at the first time, I thought the walking distance was too long and tough trekking for me. After checked the trekking path by ALPSLAB route, I felt not so difficult. Today, I started to walk at about 9:00am at Mitsumineguchi Station, and arrived at 13:40pm at Chichibu Station. The weather was a little cold early in the morning, but it was a very good condition for walking. I enjoyed this trekking event, also I brought a new new single-lens reflex camera(Nikon D90) that I bought 10days before and checked it. I felt a little tiredness and satisfaction of achievement after trekking.
