Geocache Description:

Arakawaoki Sta.

The above coordinates indicate the Arakawaoki station. However, there is not actual cache as this is a mystery cache.

Arakawaoki used to be one of the post-towns on the Mito road during the Edo period. A following figure has been kept carefully in a certain family near here (Fig.1). It is said this is a treasure guide. However, they can not decipher this. One day, you found a following piece at some place unexpectedly (Fig.2). Let's decipher the treasure guide and go to the place !

I was strongly inspired by a cache owned by WeatherReport-san (Takadanobaba 0x GC1DEJE). I am also affected by chanshira-san's cache (Dancing Men GC2KQXY). I would like to pay tribute to them. This is a first mystery cache I made. Please overlook my awkward making.

江戸時代、荒川沖は水戸街道の宿場町でした。 この付近のとある一族に大事に保管されている一枚の図があります(Fig.1)。それは宝へ導くと伝えられています。しかし一族の人は解けません。 あるとき、あなたは期せずして次のような破片を見つけました(Fig.2)。 最初の図(Fig.1)を読み解いて、その場所に行きましょう!

このミステリーは WeatherReport さんのミステリーキャッシュ(Takadanobaba 0x GC1DEJE)に触発されて作りました。chanshiraさんのキャッシュ(Dancing Men GC2KQXY)にも影響されています。彼らに敬意を表します。彼らのようにうまく作れませんでしたが、初のミステリーキャシュなので大目に見てください。
