Highway 56 – Sunday, March 31, 2019

  • Sunday, March 30, 2019, Day 18
  • Temples #40
  • Sukumo City, Japan
  • Weather: 45-50 STRONG WINDS overcast becoming sunny.
  • Miles 18 / Total Miles 322

Signage was weak at best after Temple #39. A couple saw me pondering with guide book in hand and pulled off the road to help. They indicated stay left on highway 56. They were recommending the car route whereas I wanted the walking route that avoided highways. An ohenro joined us. He motioned to stay on highway 56 so we did…all 27km with cars zipping at our side and with many long tunnels. Strong headwinds felt as if I was dragging an anchor. Arrived at Temple #40 feet weary; but, pleased to have taken an alternate route successfully.
