Starting the day before the dawn in rain. Mountains release the clouds then gradually the sky lightens. I was gazing all those dynamic silent show, but then realised that I have to go up those mountains.I left my backpack at the temple 61 which is at the bottom of the mountains, then heading to the the 60th Yokomine Temple. Now I am lighter and faster, but it’s the climbmax of the day, when I get to the ridge, the forest opens up, a small break then head to the peak. Going down is easy, then four temples at the bottom of mountains close to the each others. However, I arrived the hotel after night fell. Days are very short.

33.5km未だ薄暗い雨の中出発、山が雲を吐き出して次第に明るくなっていく、見とれているがこれからあの山に登るのか。61番香園寺で荷物を預かってもらい横峰寺を目指す。身軽な分だけ早く登れるが正に山場、道が尾根づたいに変わるところで景色が開け、接待で貰ったみかんを食べ残りの頂上まであと少し。行きは辛いが帰り早い。後は4軒、それでも宿には暗くなってから、日が短い。
