  • 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.

  • To be very beautiful in the mountains to the North of the Northern Alps. Mountains, Glacier-carved and made of beautiful mountains in Japan I don't think; Maintained trails are easy to climb. Crampons need to climb from sarukura passes through the big snow. Do not spam 10 million is seen once in a while without crampons to climb so absolutely. My good fell with no crampons and thought he could bring trouble to others. If climbing go to the tourist office in front of simple climbing irons can be rented at 1,000 yen. Very handy because it can return at Hakuba Mountain near the Summit. Want to come and take a look at night while Mt. shirouma in series is great,. From the Summit, including the Japan Sea, Toyama Prefecture, Tateyama federal, North Alps table Ginza and yarigatake, hodaka, 8 Mt., Kitadake, Mount Fuji or great panorama you can see. For the first time if you come the climbing the Mt. shirouma, surely climbing is like, only.
