After a delicious Japanese breakfast we caught the train back to where we ended the day before.

 

 

 

 

 

We walked on to Temple 64 Maegamiji (The Front God Temple).

Our path skirted Saijo City and Niihama City parallel to the main road on flat farming land close to the mountains.

While resting we were given 2 oranges and sweet by a bike rider.

There were not many resting huts any more but one, which was made out of bits of everything and looked like a home handyman job, was very welcoming.

We stopped at Yamane Park, where we met Sarah who was teaching English at a school nearby. We were told there was no camping in the park but found a grassy spot down river with a clean portable toilet and picnic table nearby.
