  • Probably yearning for people to climb Mt. shirouma. There are many routes, but less snow this year, large snow as early as closed and I decided to climb deep in no other way. Renge hot springs-Mt. shirouma-snow at Mount akakura-Asahi-Dake-Lotus Spa circuit, 2 nights 3 days walked. Mountain hut after their stay is Hakuba Mountain so as morning sun sheds. This time, the weather was beautiful, so wonderful leaves satisfied mountain became a journey.
