Tour in Golden Week, 2006: Day 1

proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fphotos1.blogger.com%2Fblogger%2F3923%2F1274%2F200%2FDSCN1550.0.jpg&hash=3c1e2ba9dfe33cac450e5fa71010f570

Seeing weather forecast, I got on Shinkansen "Nozomi" Super Express from Shin-yokohama. I got off at Kyoto.
When I was setting my bike in front of Kyoto Sta. couple from Holland talked to me, "Can you speak English?". They are interested in my Rinko-bukuro, "Where can I buy it?". As I thought, it is hard to get Rinko-bukuro in overseas. I wrote "Rinko-bukuro" in Japanese on a piece of paper and handed it to them. They said, "Thank you" and left.:)

The keyword of this tour is "follow wind". How far I can run and where I can reach?, I'm not sure.:warau: Only the sun and the clouds know.

Day 1(April 30, 2006)::bike:
[Yokohama -(Shinkansen)- Kyoto --(Route 1)-- Kusatsu(Shiga)]
(横浜-(新幹線)-京都-草津)

Just after Kyoto, it is a little climb but not so hard.

Distance: 40.53km
Time: 2h 33m 28s
Average: 15.8km/h
Max.: unknown
Difference of altitude: 120m
drink at a bar in Kusatsu untill 2:00AM.:beer1:

Hi,

after 3 days run, now I am in Matsumoto (Nagano).
Yesterday I climbed up to Shiojiri from Nakatugawa.
The trafic was so crowded but there were few trucks because of Golden Week.
The mountain scenery was beautiful, I ran with comfort.
In the day time, here high land is warm as Tokyo. But after sunset it is very cold, in the hotel there was a heater.

Today I head for Ueda. It is also mountain route.
I have to go now.

Bye.


Day 2(May 1, 2006)::bike:
[Kusatsu(Shiga) --(Route 8)-- Maibara --(Route 21)-- Sekigahara --(Route 21)-- Gifu]

Tour in Golden Week, 2006: Day 5 and 6

Hi,

I'm already home. All was over.
The last part of the tour was the Japanese Romantic Road (Japanische Romantische Strasse 日本ロマンチック街道). It is the road connecting between Utsunomiya(宇都宮) in Tochigi and Ueda(上田) in Nagano. I have already run from Nakanojo(中之条) to Utsunomiya in 2004. So this time I ran from Ueda to Nakanojo to complete the Romantic Road.

Day 5(May 4, 2006)::bike:
[Sjiojiri(Nagano) --(Route 19)-- Matsumoto --(Route254)-- Kakeyu --(Route254,152)-- Ueda(Nagano)]
(塩尻-松本-鹿教湯-上田)

From Matsumoto to Kakeyu there was a Misayama tunnel(三才山トンネル) . It was over 2,500m long. In spite of it is a toll tunnel (50 yen), it didn't have bike lane or pedestrian road. It was most dangerous time for me in this tour. The way to the tunnel was terrible steep slope, all the way is 8% slope. I don't recommend you to go the way.:warau:

Distance: 79.02km
Time: 5h 20m 44s
Average: 14.7km/h
Max.: 35.8km
Difference of altitude: 625m
drink at a bar in Ueda untill 11:00PM.:beer1:

Day 6(May 5, 2006)::bike:
[Ueda(Nagano) --(Route 144)-- Torii Pass --(Route 44)-- Haneo --(Route 145) Nkanojo(Gunma) --(JR train)-- Toritsu-daigaku(Tokyo) -- Yokohama(Kanagawa)]
(上田-鳥居峠-羽根尾-中之条-(JR)-都立大学-横浜)

The road to Torii Pass(altitude 1362m) was very steep slope. I climbed up little by little.
At Agatsuma(吾妻), very close to Nakanojo, I saw a sign of Japanese Romantic Road. Gee! I found that the track I ran from Ueda to Tsumagoi(嬬恋) was not the route of Romantic Road. :eek: I was so exhausted that I could not go back.
I have to run one more time to complete the Japanese Romantic Road.:warau:

Distance: 82.45km + 18.89km = 101.34km
(because my cyclecomputer was broken at Toritsu-daigaku, the below data is for first 82.45km)
Time: 5h 24m 21s
Average: 15.2km/h
Max.: 48.7km
Difference of altitude: 1045m
drink at a bar in Jiyugaoka untill 2:00AM.:beer1:

Date: April 30 - May 5, 2006

Okay, I write about my magic hat.
It is not only for a monk but for outdoor people in old days in Japan, like farmers, fishers, travelers, etc..

I had been wishing to try to wear one in my bike tour and I found it at Tsumago post town(妻籠宿). Two women were making the hats.
View attachment 14
I bought it as soon as I found it. It had so good ventilation that good for outdoor activities. Will you want to try?
No, I don't recommend you when you wear it on bike, because the resistance of wind is terrible.:warau:

D51 is special. It was the most famous and popular locomotive in Japan. But it is too heavy and damage line, so many rail way company avoid to let it run.

In the bus, I find the road to Abo-Toge is terrible. There are many tunnels and they are really narrow. And there are too many trafic. Cars cannot overtake bikes. It means bike must run as same speed as car. If you want to run here I recommend you to run from Takayama to Matsumoto. (The road of Takayama side is not terrible. In the case of decending you can run in same speed as car. (Sorry I cannnot.:warau: )
