Altering the sequence of temples allowed an early morning start with fresh legs for the first of the last three tallest mountains. As the mountain trail is remote, I arranged to walk with one of the guests at last night’s accommodation. Sharing skills, Akita H. and I had a safe and enjoyable walk ascending 3,000 feet. One down, two to go.
Why was I not surprised to meet Ishihara S. at the top? He’s been charging full steam ahead since Temple #40 as I hop trains. New friends and re-acquaintances are daily treasures.
