48ml. Left bright and early this morning and after a short while I was on a 650m climb up Mt Mokotoyama and the full waterproof gear came out. Couldn’t see any views which was a shame, for the low cloud. Got to the top and a great viewing area of lake Kussharu but was dull and cloudy so not a great view. I was making for the campsite here but after all the rain I decided to head for a rider house about the same distance away. I was cold and couldn’t feel my fingers in my right hand. I arrived at a rest station at Teshikaga and met a family of 4 on great bikes, from Switzerland. I chatted for a while and decided to camp in the nearby park with an onsen round the corner. The Swiss family were also getting warm and had the same plan to camp in the park. Luckily my tent fit under the shelter in the park so I could keep out of the rain and have a dry tent in the morning. After pitching the tent it was off to the onsen, ¥400, and felt great and warmed up after. Then it was curry and rice and a cup of tea before bed.
