According to the weather forecast, it would rain from the afternoon. I started a little earlier today. 745 departure. Temp:20C. From Narai to Shiojiri, the descent would continue. It was easy to move. After the arrival at Shiojiri, I was obliged to got up to the pass again. Finally, I arrived Shiojiri pass. The altitude was 1012m, which was the highest record during the journey. The temperature was 17C. It was cold.
After the pass, I could see “Lake Suwako” though the photo was a little misted. I went half around the lake under the gray sky.
I had made the plan to go up the mountains from here according to the route of Nakasendo(the ancient road). However, I was tired to follow this ancient road since I already enjoyed the road for last 3 days. I took the easier way and arrived Chino city.
