09:00 wake up at the Train Hostel somehow feeling really tired
10:30 breakfast and organizing hostels for upcoming days finished starting to go to the point zero – nihonbashi
10:57 start at Nihonbashi
12:57 first Station shinagawa-juku
It even says Toukaidou Shinagawajuku stone-something. I am really happy to find it.
So the next stations would have been Kawasaki and Kanagawa but it was really difficult to find any milestone and I couldn’t really pinpoint anything.
For Kawasaki I found the Heiken-Ji temple as a landmark which has been also visited by the 2nd son of the 8th Tokugawa shogun (see Wikipedia). However it was a small detour to get to that temple.
On my way to Kanagawa I found several signs hinting to the old Tokaido path but no real milestone
My walk continued but I realized that my shoes will not last me for the next 19 days and because the shops were closing soon and will open too late tomorrow I had to take a train from Kokudo station to Yokohama station which is around 7km. To be honest I don’t feel too bad about it because well I wouldn’t see much of the old path anyway and I actually went to see the pikachu festival and Chinatown. So I would say distance wise I did still had my fill of walking. Tomorrow I will begin my walk from Yokohama station.
