Geocache Description:

This cache is a three-step multi-cache which went via the Kinuura-tunnel which connects Hekinan-shi and Handa-shi of Aichi Prefecture.

The Kinuura tunnel is an undersea tunnel to which the central wharf and east wharf of a Kinuura harbor of Aichi Mikawa-wan are connected.
Apart from the tunnel only for a car, the tunnel for on foot and bicycles also exists.
In order to find a cache, you have to pass along this tunnel for pedestrians.
In addition, the length of this tunnel is about 480m (1575feet).

Please confirm "Guidance" before going out for a cache quest.
(When not checking this photograph, you cannot find a cache!)

The container is hidden in the 1st point. The coordinates of the last point are written to it.
First of all, please find it.

If you can find the 1st point cache -- next, please look for the north-northeast-ward tunnel for pedestrians.
If you can find the tunnel entrance for pedestrians, let's enter into it.
(Since it cannot be passed through any vehicles other than a bicycle, let's park a car in a nearby parking lot)

In order to acquire the coordinates of the 2nd point, please check the following points in a tunnel.

checkpoint 1
The number of stories of a bottom floor
-> A

There is a signboard of the tunnel remaining distance in a tunnel on the way.
The "Guidance" photograph becomes a right-hand side signboard, when it enters from Hekinan.
(Although there is the same signboard also as left-hand side, it is not a candidate for a check. Be careful!)

checkpoint 2,3,4,5
The remaining distance written to the 2nd and the 3rd signboard (or the 5th and the 6th)
-> B,C,D,E

Please confirm "Guidance" for details.

Please calculate the following formula, in order to acquire the coordinates of the 2nd point.
N 34° ((C+D+E)*A)/100)-9.148 E 136°((B+D+E)*A)/100)-39.038

The container is hidden in the 2nd point,too. The coordinates of the last point are written to it.

Please go to the last point based on the coordinates acquired by the 1st point and the 2nd point.
The true cache is hidden there.
