So wonderful

Shimanto river : it is located in Kochi prefecture in Shikoku area which is in left and south area from Osaka city.
I planed the training camp around this river 3 weeks before 2. March.
This time, my friend and I went there together. We packed some necessary camping equipments. Actually , we partly share them , for example, tent, gas burner and so on.
Each package might weight about 30 Kg or so. I felt heavy because It's been a long time since I carried on my back last time.
We left for Tokyo station and took the special Tokaido line running over the night .Then we exchanged many railways and accross the Seto-Big-Bridge over Seto-sea and go into a canyon by a express, after all we arrived at a small town. It has great nature including Shimanto river !!
