日出る地へ(徒歩日本横断#1)

日本最北端の地 宗谷岬から3986キロもの道のりを歩いて日本最南端の地 波照間島に辿り着いた徒歩日本縦断からおよそ8ヶ月

横石は日本最東端の地に立っていた

実は徒歩日本縦断はもう「最後の旅にしよう」と思って休学してまで実行した旅だったのに、なぜか次は日本最東端 北海道納沙布岬に来たのだ。

感の鋭い皆さんなら分かると思うが、横石はまた旅をしようと思う。今度は日本最東端から日本最西端の地 与那国島までをまた歩いて…

言い換えれば朝日が日本で1番早く出る場所から夕日が日本で1番遅く沈む場所まで。

自分自身、また旅をすることになったのは自分で決めたくせに驚いている。だって去年で旅は最後だと思っていたし…

ただ、去年の旅を終えた後、最初は達成感と充実感で満たされていたが、時間が経つに連れて少しずつ違和感のようなものが生まれていた

「あれ?俺日本を歩ききった気でいるけど、実際のところ1番東から西までは歩いてないよな…」

そう思えば思うほど、むくむくと湧き上がってくるのは「もう一度自分の足で道の果てを確かめたい」ただそれだけだった

結局ロマンを追いかけ続けたつもりでいて、まだその答えは出ない。だから横石はまた歩くことにした。

また死ぬほどキツくて苦しい思いをすることも分かってるし、このご時世で旅をするのもどうかと思うかもしれない。ただ迷っていてもその先に道は開けない。行くと決めたその先に道は開けていく。なによりロマンを追いかけない横石は横石ではない。だからもう一度旅をする。(もちろんコロナに関しては移さない移らないを前提として旅をする。ただ歩き旅は性質上極端に移動範囲は狭いし、横石の旅は野宿をベースとしているので密となることもあまりない。そうした条件を客観的に見た上で判断した)

そして8月5日の今日 横石は日本最東端 北海道の納沙布岬に降り立ったのだ(家から飛行機2時間。バス11時間の苦行を強いられる僻地)

現在地からわかる遠さ

降り立ってまず最東端の写真を撮って

後何百万歩積み重ねるか分からない、最初の一歩を踏み出す

このご時世の世間体も含めれば以前よりも厳しい道のりになるかもしれない。そこは覚悟を決めての一歩だ。これからなにがあろうとも、ただ西を目指して踏み出し続ける。

なによりも日本が好きだからね!!!

さぁ、どんな旅になるのだろう

ちなみに今日は飛行機や夜行バスを乗り継いだ疲れもあるし、身体を元の状態に戻し、歩き旅に慣らすためにも根室市街地までの23キロほどを歩く。去年の横石を知っている方からすれば「楽勝じゃん」と思うかもしれないけど、やはり8ヶ月も間が空くとなかなか思う通りに歩けないものなのだ。

天気は雨予報だったのが気付けば晴れて、門出を祝福してくれているようだ

納沙布岬を歩き出してすぐに広がるのは、「これぞ北海道」というような何もない原野

「旅が始まったんだ」という実感をなによりも湧かせてくれる

と同時に進むべき道のりの果てしなさにロマンと共に絶望感が入り混じる懐かしい感覚。

歩いても歩いても広がるのは同じ景色

これこそ北海道を歩く一番の辛さだろう

そしてこれも北海道あるある

超難読地名

ごようまい?こんな難しい字誰か読めるの?笑

空は天気予報が大外れの気持ちの良い晴天

というかもはやいくら道東根室でも暑いし、久しぶりの徒歩旅でいきなりこれはキツい…でも太陽に文句言ったら2度と出てこなくなるのが北海道だから、ここはありがたく太陽を浴びる

行く道の先に休憩をする場所は何一つなく、少し広い道路の片隅で腰を下ろして足をさする

やはり慣れていない。去年のスタートよりは幾分楽だが、とにかく肩が痛い。暑さも相まり辛さはなかなかのものだ。だけど今日は23キロ。明日はさらに歩く予定でもっとキツくなることは目に見えているので今日のところは、弱音を胸にしまって前に進む

果てしなく続く湿地帯を20キロほど進み、ようやく根室市街に戻ってきたときには午後3時で暑さもピーク。どんな旅でも初日はきついのだと改めて実感する。

そして本当は初日だし、夜行バスなどでちゃんと寝れていないので根室では自転車日本一周の時お世話になったライダーハウスに泊まりたかったが、まだ自分がコロナを持っている可能性はゼロではないのでしっかり野宿。

ただこの根室市街地にある明治公園という場所は、根室野宿の聖地らしいのだが、予想以上の美しさ。草原に立つ3本のサイロが北海道らしさを存分に醸し出す。

さらにこの公園はバーベキュー場があったり、屋根があったり、それはもう完璧なまでの野宿公園だったのだ。これなら疲れを癒せる…一安心しながら久しぶりのブログを書き終わってさらに一安心した…

明日は根室を出て厚床(あっとこ)という町まで向かう予定だ。距離的には36キロと、いつもならちょうど良い距離だが、2日目は毎回1番きつい…明日を無事乗り切れればと祈りながら北海道の涼しい夏の夜を楽しみたいと思う。

全然進んでねぇ…また絶望

いよいよ始まった徒歩日本横断は緑でピン付していきたいと思います!

そして今年もまたブログランキングやろうと思ってるので、ぜひ下の日本一周ボタンを押して応援してくださいー!

今年も横石の旅も是非楽しんで見てくだされば幸せです!

北海道根室市
