I’m going out for a ride this Sunday morning - weather permitting. No real plan. I’ll just do a few climbs and get home around lunchtime. Reply to this thread or PM me if interested. I’m happy to meet along the Arakawa if you’re coming from Tokyo.

Shiroishi is here if you don’t know:

Dropped pin
Near 〒355-0366 Saitama, Hiki-gun, Tokigawa, Ōno, 奥武蔵グリーンライン 白石峠(しろいしとうげ)

Btw, I never know if it’s Shiraishi or Shiroishi Toge. Someone clear this up for me once and for all🙏

It may be both - q.v. http://twelve.rgr.jp/dhc/shiroishi_tokigawa.html

More people that I know say 'shiraishi' than 'shiroishi', but that doesn't mean they're correct.

Famously, the Fujisan-worshipping 浅間神社 organisation/business can't make up their mind whether their name is 'asama' or 'sengen', so both are officially correct.

(English speakers who consider this confusing can ponder cough and bough and trough and dough.)

@Half-Fast Mike thanks for clearing that up, Sir🙏While we’re here, do you remember what the mountain range that the Green Line sits on is called? I read the Wikipedia page for it once but I haven’t been able to find it again. I think there are seven peaks if you walk the whole length of it from Moro to Dodaira.

No problem, Sean. Looking forward to seeing you when you get the time to head up this way.
