From 20th to 21st of September, we went to Chichibu and Nagatoro in Saitama.

<Day 1> Route: http://yahoo.jp/aF2WRs
We gathered and took off from ICU at half past seven. The weather forecast was announcing rain for the past few days, but it didn't rain a single drop this day:) Taking the train from Higashi-Koganei to Ome, we bought lunch at a convenience store near the train station. Running through the countryside passing various cyclists, we arrived at the lunch site around half past 12.

After lunch, we climbed the Yamabushi hill for a while. With a lot of time to spare, we bought various food and rested at the Ashigakubo roadside station before heading for Chichibu. Arriving at the campsite around 6pm, we prepared for dinner and then took a bath at a guest house near the campsite. We had dinner, chattered for a while and then went to sleep.

We started our day with hot udon to warm our body. At the Mikado Farm right near the campsite, we enjoyed grape picking. Thirty minutes of happiness...<3

We hurried to Nagatoro, took lunch and enjoyed ice shaving and the rocky scenery spreading along the  Arakawa river. After spending a relaxing time, we went back to Seibu-Chichibu train station, took a train to Shiki train station and safely arrived back in ICU.
