Had a little trouble locating this trail post. It was located near the train station exit. Funny story, the bus that I took from the city made a brief stop here before going to Takao.

Said goodbye to my new companion.

6:37 pm – Bicycle
P_20160130_183726
I forgot to mention, the host also provided a bicycle for me to use. Tonight is my last night and I just used it for the first time. I got to the supermarket before 7 and the edibles were already marked 30% off. I guess each one has their own rule when to put discount stickers. One thing’s for sure though, they all put discounts on the edibles when they’re near closing time (at least the ones that I’ve been to).
