Next step of my plan was to walk from the viewing platform to Chuzenji village and the lake. My casual reading of the guidebook led me to believe that this was a 1.5 walk. That seemed like a good deal. There was a chain before the steps that was the start of the trail, as indicating that the trail was closed. But there was no other signs, save this map, so I decided to ignore it. I did study the map carefully, and I also put it on the clipboard on my camera, but I was not careful to make sure that I got the entire signpost. That could have helped.
