I wanted to this and start from north tip of the island.But whether condithion of the day interdicts me. At the time sunrise,It was cloudy sky.Cloudburst happens wolking on the trail. Some parts of this trial are known hazardous. And escape corses to road aren't much.I decided to interrupt my plan. And turn direction to the inn to waiting ferry schudle to Wakkanai.
