Tenderness & pain in the back of the left knee slowly but surely ebbing away with each new day. Strained and loosened hamstring tendons/posterior cruciate ligaments have finally started to tighten up and regain their proper tension again! HURRAH!! Comforting sensation but 油断大敵!!!

both lakes 円良田湖 & 間瀬湖 are famous for "hera-buna" fishing (and wakasagi during the winter months). Maseko is on the way up to Maze-toge 間瀬峠. Half-way I programmed the GPS for Jomine-san 城峰山...it seemed to have picked up a fantastic route and rindo leading to the top. Unfortunately, the rindo turned into a very rough dirt road with deep crevaces running near both sides. I crashed and hit the rocks/pebbles with my bad left knee first...now not only the inside but the outside is hurting very bad. Only a small cut and a little bit of blood but the knee looks blue-ish now. Called it a day and turned back to Chichibu...walking the rougher parts and ruining my (brand-new!) cleats in the process. A weird oni ogre statue was overlooking Saitama's own Kegon-no-taki but I was no longer in the mood to check out the waterfall right below. The statue represents an acala naatha or fudou-myouou 不動明王; in this case 空滝大明王 (supposed to be another haikyo site!). Very pleasant temperatures all day, average of 18 degrees.
