At the end of a very long first day of my walk over and around the Kunisaki Peninsula I stopped for the night on the banks of the reservoir behind Namiishi Dam.
I had now reached the high country in the middle of the peninsula by walking up one of the numerous valleys that radiate out from Mount Futago, and the landscape was dramatic with features that made it an obvious site for early Yamabushi to inhabit.
There is a small park here, and that is where I spread out my sleeping bag....
All the posts of this days walk can be found by clicking here, though they will be in reverse chronological order.
Tomorrow I will pass over the high center of the peninsula and hopefully reach the east coast.
