Woke up. Ate banana for breakfast, and got banana for lunch by my senior.
The second day started! The weather is sun shower. Today is not hot, lovely.
Today's destination is Odawara. I check my navigaton and find out I need to several hours walk to confluent Tokaido.
Entered Isehara-City and took a rest at a convenience store. I am going to across Hakone-Peak tomorrow, so It's better to stay near Hakone-Peak as much as possible. I reseearch today's hotel, but I realize that deciding where to stay today at Odawara-City is better, because it's difficult to assume when I can reach Odawara.
I'm following Google Map's navigation, but I felt danger, because the side way is too narrow. It's not big enough to walk even a person.
I felt danger but I kept walking and entered Hiratsuka-City. I have still long way to Tokaido.
I took lunch break in front of Kana-Garden, which is a garden run by Hiratsuka-City. There are many beautiful flowers at the garden.
Banana is one of the most important energy source of mine. I feel little pain on my sholes. I am not sure the effectiveness of my first aid, but I put a bandage on my soles aiming for relief pain. After a half hour break, I depart. The weather has got well, so it is sunny now.
Sunshine is strong, so I need to take a rest. I find a nice shrine named Rokusho-Shrine. I'm not sure what is deified for this shrine, but nice place to take a rest. I imagined I could dring water at shrines, because they have "Chozu"(where people wash hands and mouth before praying) and sometimes they also provide tap water. However, the shrine has only Chozu.
Finally, I reached Tokaido. I didn't imagin I took such a long hour to reach Tokaido.
Entered Odawara-City. The weather is sunny, sunshine becomes strong and temperature has got hot. It's bad weather for pedestrians.
I took a rest at McDonald's in Odawara-City and thought about today's accomodation. Luckily, I find one guest house near Hakone-Yumoto station, but the check-in will close at 9PM. I wonder arriving at the guest house before 9PM will be possible or not. My options are two, staying at a Manga cafe at Odawara or at the guest house. I make up my mind I will decide which plan to take at the edge of Odawara-City.
I felt strong pain on my soles from then. I took a rest 5min each an hour and 30min each 3 hours. However, I sometimes skipped those breaks.
Arrived at centre of Odawara-City. I decided to stay at the guest house, so I made a phone all and a reservation. I assumed that I would got tot the guest house about 2 hours, but they mentioned that ordinary people reached their guest house from Odawara station took one and a half housr...
Arrived at Hakone-Yumoto station. It was getting dark.
Entered Hakone-Town, 1km left. I feel a bit of pain on my left knee.
Finally, I got to the K's guest house, today's accomodation. When I arrived at there, the sun had already set. The guest house is dormitory style, but has hot spas. Most of the guests there were foreigners, and in general they rarely use public spas, so I monopolized the spas. I had tingling on my neck, which might be caused by sunburn.
