Jamie here again, Monday was a beautiful day, wasn’t it? It was so good Idecided to headed out on the bike. I think it was about 7:30am when I left. My first stop was Inukai when I spotted a scarecrow in the river which I thought was a little unusual, why have a scarecrow in the river??????. Let me apologise in advance for the photos but they were taken with my mobile phone.
Once I got to Inukai I decided to head up into the mountains up behind Inukai River Park and came across what,at first I thought was a dog but, turned out to be wild pig (inoshishi). I was so surprised but, wasn’t quick enough to get a picture.
Next stop was Mie Town I arrived just after 9am. I took a photo of the station and kept going.
I saw a newish looking road and the sign said “Ishiwatani” so I thought why not and went in that direction. I don’t know if I actually got there or it’s a very small place but, on the way I found a little Shrine nestled in the mountains.
I continued to follow the road when suddenly, it just turned in to a small concrete path then a dirt path. It was more than a little disappointing because I had to turn around and go back the way I’d came.
