The team gathered. We wanted to go to “IBUNE” as it is the season of fresh green. The sun’s light penetrates the leaves, which makes the whole forest looks green. It is a very fantastic world.
But the Suzuka mountain of the summer is a leech hell. Leeches appears everywhere. Ryo and Chika used medicine, but Kei did not take the same measures in hope of adapting to the area. We encountered many leeches, but they never sucked any blood.
It was a wonderful place at “IBUNE” and there was a 360 degree panoramic view, with the whole surface was covered with moss. However it was very windy and cold. Kei forgot warm clothing (!) so they made a bonfire.
