Woke up. It’s drizzling. I heard heavy rain yesterday midnight, but it’s getting better now, nice.
The rain had stopped! Today’s first goal is to cross Suzuka-Pass. I will decide today’s final destination after that. Ishigaki-Ya has such a nice room which has full of Japanese antique.
I did sightseeing at Seki-inn. Over the houses, I see Suzuka-Mountain.
A nice, retro post. It matches the scenery of Seki-Post-Town.
Eat breakfast. This bread contains much calorie. I need calorie to cross the peak.
The traffic signal says how many kilometres there are from Osaka. Osaka is closer than Tokyo from here.
The traffic signal indicates the remaining kilometres to Osaka.
Google navigates to use this road. The sign says old-Tokaido, but it looks like an animal trail. There is stone pavement, which is almost the same to the one in Hakone, but it ended soon. Good for my leg.
Walking along the old-Tokaido, I find stairs made by concrete. Before reaching this point, the road is like an animal trail. How different they are!
The atmosphere of this place is like “Princess Mononoke”
Entered Koka-City. I imagined Suzuka-Pass was very similar to Hakone-Pass, but it is far moderate than Hakone.
Eat lunch at Michi-no-Eki Aino-Tsuchiyama. I wondered to eat Omi-beef or Ninja-combo. Finally, I decided to eat Ninja-combo because it sounds nice. I also decide today’s destination, Kosai station at Konan-City.
Entered Minakuchi Post Town.
I looked for restaurants, but all of them were full of people, so I eat dinner at Komeda Coffee which is a café, not a restaurant.
I rethink today’s goal, because Suzuka-Pass was not steep as I had expected, so I have extra power. I change today’s goal to Ritto-City, but when I go out from Komeda, it starts raining. I change my mind again and stay at the nearest Manga café.
Arrived today’s Manga café. My legs are quite well, only little pain on my ankle and soles. It is possible to reach Sanjo-Ohashi, which is the last point of Tokaido, tomorrow.
