After our short but steep hill climb we rounded the corner to the car park which is the starting point for the short but steep accent of this side of Mt Kakuda. The car park was already full and is was only around 10.30am I guess. Hiking is a really popular activity in Japan mainly with senior citizens but you also see a few families as well out hiking. After locking our bicycles to the fence Sunil produced a bottle of Spanish red wine and a corkscrew which we readily put into my bag and started off up the trial.
