Too Many Bridges The Rotating Arrow A Row of Dice

The Rotating Arrow is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.


Here we have a pentagon with equal sides. As shown in Figure 1, a square with sides the same length as one side of the pentagon sits flush against the five-sided shape. It's labeled with an arrow pointing up. If you flip the square along the pentagon as shown in Figure 2, the arrow on the square changes direction.

Using the diagram below, figure out which direction the arrow faces if you continue to flip the square along the pentagon counterclockwise back to its original position.
