So I stayed close to town, and ended up just doing a short Takao/Otarumi Pass/Kobu Tunnel loop. The first time in several years I have done this climb from the South side. A light rain started just as I emerged from the North side of the tunnel ... but stopped once I got back on the flat and put a little distance between myself and Itsukaichi.
