As part of the kickoff event, I will lead a walking meditation in Rinko Park.
I will walk from my house to Yomiuriland, possibly via 百合ヶ丘駅 or just go a more direct route.
👉🏿 Let’s enjoy riding roller coasters in Yomiuriland!
👉🏿 Anyone want to try the bungee? It’s not that tall!
It will probably be dark by the time we leave Yomiuriland,
so I doubt we will be able to see much near Tama River.
But we’ll cross Tama River and then walk a bit to Chuokan Hotel.
Including ~1 hour at the Sewerage Museum

~45 minutes Walking Meditation in Sayama Inariyama Prefectural Park until 15:15pm
See the zoo for an hour until 17:45pm
Chill at hot spring for an hour until 19:30
Along the way:
Hang out until 14:30pm at Kezoji Park
Will turn left at Planet Restroom and Restaurant Planet (closed)
Will likely visit 上州たかやま 田んぼアート (field art) for photos!
Including through a tunnel with a narrow sidewalk..
Will pass Meigetsu Orchards
Will pass 7-Eleven Minakami Fuse Shop
Oh nooo the Bungy jump location seems to be closed April 27th!!
Will not use:
You may notice there is another tunnel looking thing, but it has a sidewalk next to it.
There is a tunnel on Highway 17
just north of Lodge Montoze,
through which I cannot safely walk
because there are no sidewalks.
One of my skiing friends said there will likely be very few skiers by this date, so I can likely use the ski slopes to the west of the tunnel, possibly using Tashiro Ropeway. I prefer walking if possible, but we shall see exactly what is possible!

Just for the record, I am choosing not to walk about 60 m the wrong direction including across a busy Street so I can head toward my destination tonight and stop at a convenience store about 31 minutes away according to Google maps which will be about an hour at my pace.
That is to say, there’s a convenience store about 60 m wrong direction from which way I want to go so I’m not going to go there. I will instead walk 2.4 km the correct direction so as to not waste steps.
I did a couple of livestreams on Instagram yesterday. (I downloaded and copied them to Youtube so you don’t have to log in to view them.)

Great talking to Eddie a bit on his way to get his kids.
APA Hotel Tsubamesanjo Ekimae is really the best I have used this walk in terms of price per ameneties.
Private bath, bed, TV with free VOD including adult content, plus a larger than micro sized toothpaste, and a nice toothbrush with soft bristles. Just 3700 yen. Nice.
Day 22 was
Before I started walking, Jason H described a simple 4 steps to adapting to any stressful situation. I think I am in the last stage now; I have just come to realize walking is my life. Nothing can be done to change it. Just walk walk walk.
I felt quite hot and tired by the end of today. Not a drop of rain in sight, and plenty of sun, so I am glad I put on sunscreen before I started out at 7am. I arrived at the hotel about 2:30pm, so 7.5 hours walking 17.5 kilometers (according to Google Maps)
