Ogose Station -> Katsuragi Shrine -> Kouburi Pass(H=530m) -> Agano Station

I walked to see the Chichibu mountains from Kouburi-Pass at the end of 2009. I walked 29th of December. It was a fine weather, so I could see a wonderful panoramic view from Kouburi Pass. Although I wanted to see a wonderful scene, eating delicious buckwheat noodles, unfortunately the buckwheat-noodles restaurant was closed. As for the buckwheat noodles of the restaurant which I ate this time, unfortunately I thought it was the same looked meal of buckwheat noodles, but the taste and texture were completely different.
I started from Ogose Station of Tobu Ogose line and arrived at Agano Station of Seibu Chichibu line. I walked about 16km. It needed about 5hours that included a little intermission for lunch at Kouburi Pass.
