Last Sunday I climbed up toward the end of the mountain trail in Azuma Mountain Range located over Northeast Japan to enjoy hot spring which has cured local people for 300 years.
The name of the hot spring is "Nuruyu Onsen". Nuruyu means relatively low temperature water of about 30-40 degree Celsius.

Lilydale Station - Yering Station (return trip)
Distance: 17.32 km
Average speed: 18.4 kph
Road condition: gravel
Equipment: M6L-X raw
I started from Lilydale Station in the morning before strong south wind blew.
Near Coldstream Station. A half way of the stage 1A.
A lot of riders and runners were enjoying the trail early in the morning.
The current trail, Stage 1A, ends in 7.5 km at Yering Station.
The trail is expected to continue toward Yarra Glen Station. According to Yarra Ranges Shire Council, Stage 1b, 4.5 km from Yering to Yarra Glen Station, requires more approvals and is more complex to construct, including bridge renovations and constructions over creeks and rivers. The work of stage 1b is expected to commence in March 2020 and should be open to the public by the end of 2021.
