Geocache Description:


This is a BIG Faces multi cache in Tokyo.
You will start from Asakusa area and 1.5 mile walking to get to the final point.

###1st point###

N 35°42.623
E139°47.304

Here is the south-end of Kappabashi street. Just go to north and you will find so many kitchen devices/tools, tupperwares (for Geocacher!?) and amazing food-samples (and KAPPA as well!). If you are to open your restaurant, you just come here and get EVERYTHING.
Asakusa is very popular place for everyone, but if you come to Asakusa, you shouldn't miss here.

Now, you may be at crossroads. Please look upon the sky from the coordinate. You will see the Big Face at the top of some building. Beside the face, you will see the 8-digit number such as; abcd-edfa. This shows the 2nd point, another Big Face.

Move on to the 2nd point but don't forget to look around the Kappabashi street before you move!

###2nd point###

N 35°42.(b+e)(a+c)(c-f)
E139°46.(c+d-a)(b+f-a)b

You will see another Big Face here. By the 1923 earthquake, more than 100 thousand people were passed away and more than 400 thousands of houses were broken, this face had fallen from his body. About 50 years later, this face has set here as you see now.

Key to the final point? Don't be hurry!
You might have climbed up the steps to get here. Go down to the ground floor. You may see the silver information plate.
Read carefully and find out 4-digit number; when first great one was built? --->ABCD

###Final point###

N 35°42.(A+B)(C-D)A
E139°46.(C-A)B(B+C-1)

Welcome to the final point. Cache is about 1 litter, diameter cylinder-type, plastic container.
Please take a walk around this area after you find the Cache.

浅草はカッパ橋から始まる、3km弱の「巨・面」マルチキャッシュです。と言っただけで分かる人には分かってしまうかもしれませんね。

###1st point###
N 35°42.623
E139°47.304
ここはカッパ橋商店街の南端の十字路です。ここから天を仰ぐと、ある角の建物の上にデカイ顔があります。その横に8ケタの数字があります。
 --> abcd-edfa

次のポイントに行く前に、カッパ橋を見ていってくださいね。プロ用調理器具から看板、焼印、ジオキャッシング用タッパーウェア、食品サンプル(凄い!!)などなどいろいろあります!もちろん、たくさんのカッパも皆さんを歓迎していますよ。

###2nd point###
N 35°42.(b+e)(a+c)(c-f)
E139°46.(c+d-a)(b+f-a)b
ここにも大きな顔があります。ここに来るまでに、何段か階段を登ってきたことと思いますが、最終ポイントに行くための鍵は、その階段の下にあるのでした。
階段の下には銀色の案内板(説明板?)があります。ここをじっくり読んで、これが最初にできた年をチェックしましょう。
 --> ABCD

###Final point###
N 35°42.(A+B)(C-D)A
E139°46.(C-A)B(B+C-1)
お疲れ様でした。いよいよ最後のポイントです。後はキャッシュを「取り出す」だけです。キャッシュは200ccぐらいの円柱形のプラスチック容器です。
マグルがいますので、気をつけてくださいね。キャッシュを「取り出し」たら、この景色やこの周辺を楽しんでください。
