How are walking times calculated?
Walking times are estimated with a modified approach to Naismith’s rule to account for elevation gains/losses and other practical considerations that require a more conservative bias. The basis of our calculations assumes a speed of 4 kilometers per hour on flat land. Learn more here.

A small Michi no Eki along the Oda river valley, almost exactly halfway along the 40 km between Uchiko and Kumakougen. It is a good place to break the trip into two manageable halves. It sells a small range of what appeared to be home made foods.

The Michi no Eki has a lovely rest hut next to the river. It is pleasant and peaceful there.


The two Ohenro I was walking with were both planning to push on for another 20 km to the next likely accommodation and to Temple 44. But that would have been too far for me and I was happy to sit and have my late lunch next to a very picturesque stream in the lovely lunch area for tourists. A giant sushi roll and a giant biscuit, local foods from the Michi no Eki.

Because the other two both spoke Japanese and both had phones on the Japanese system they were able to help me by booking the current and next nights accommodation. After they left I stayed a good while at the shelter by the river and watched its water flow over the local dam’s stepped spillway. Then I got up to try to find my nights accommodation, who mildly scolded me for wasting my time near the river and being a little late.
