Itinerary description

==== ATTENTION! ====
THIS IS NOT A CONTINUOS TRACK RECORDING. The real distance can be MUCH LONGER than the recorded one. The vertical distance (up and down) can be longer, too. USE A MAP to follow the route described below. For hiking trails, I used the 山と高原池図App. I tried to remember switching on GPS tracking on all points that are critical for finding the right way. Where GPS tracking was not active, a straight line is displayed instead of the real path.

==== CONTEXT ====
All my tracks 2023JP are for a series of 33 walks that connect Tokyo, at the Pacific Ocean, with Joetsu, at the Sea of Japan, passing near Mount Fuji. Done from 29th of September until 1st of November 2023. I will publish a resume named "2023JP 00 TOKYO to SEA OF JAPAN 東京 日本海".
