Just Did It!

On August 14, in the height of summer, we took on the challenge under the scorching sun.
The area around Tomioka Silk Mill is enjoyable to walk around the town because of its historical landscape. However, the high temperatures made it difficult. …… There are vending machines here and there along the way, so be sure to use them often to stay hydrated!
