I was fortunate –some might say "doomed" – to get a head start on tiling because I was a relatively early adopter of consumer GPS, having had an awful experience getting lost on a ridge hike in Okutama and ending up sliding down about 500 m of mud on my butt, with a friend. We emerged from a mountainside cemetery onto the road, looking like zombies, and were fortunate enough to have landed right by the Hebi-no-yu onsen.but I didn't record any of the hikes on Strava back then. As we know, that means they never happened
Wish I could join you, but this weekend is booked with other things. Dang. I definitely want/need to do this, so will be interested to hear how you get on. Did you book a place at the lodge? (I don't know if that's a thing... I was planning to take my tent, when I eventually go.)I'm planning to hike from Mitsumine shrine to Kamosawa and overnight in the Kumotori lodge this Saturday/Sunday.
