Temperature: minus 11 degrees Celsius at the Tokachidake Hot Springs (Tokachidake Onsen).

He was supposed to do his training on another mountain. However, the temperature was too high that the snow condition was bad there. Therefore, he decided to change the training route. On the Mt.Tokachidake, the snow was good. A muddy fresh snow required a little more power to climb than usual. He repeated the interval training at the summit.
