Path Start
We will turn right, onto the path, making our way to Otemon Gate. If there’s anything you may need before we get our walk started this is an excellent place to go. Up ahead is a convenience store with any snacks, drinks, or anything in between you made want! If it’s a chilly day you could always grab a bowl of Oden, or if you need something to cool you off, a chilled can of Asahi always hits the spot! There is also a public bathroom here if you would like to make a quick pit stop so we can fully enjoy all the sites!
