Notes:(by tatsuca)
   I have light back ache there days, so I planed this short easy one, in which I hoped to find Senburi flowers and Kikou-haguma flowers.

The weather was not so good and a little cold, as a matter of fact, but I could find the two flowers successfully, and I enjoyed the light hiking on a quiet trail.

[Rating of the trail for middle-aged beginner hikers, like myself
* The keys used in my logs are in: http://mountrec.com/modules/diary/629-detail-455
- Required Stamina: Level 2 of 5. relatively easy.
- Difficulty: Level 1. There were a couple of rocky small peaks with fixed ropes, but I didn't have to use them.
- Unnerving?: Level 1. No scary place.
Get lost? Level 3. The traces are clear, but there are many branches, so a map and a compass or a GPS would be recommended.
- Photogenic? Level 1. Since the trail is on the low ridge through forests, there were no spots to command great mountain views. But as a wildflower lover, I enjoyed to take pictures of them.
- Come again? Level 2. The trail is a little too short, but comfortable to walk.
- Comment: The course is part of 30km trail-run course, so if you are a trail-runner, you probably enjoy running this course and further route in Takamizu area.
