    I love white horse, go every year, but for the first time climbed Mt. shirouma. Snow walked, was nervous in a pretty serious climbers, but hope the that was between the mountain. Presenting road begins from a gentle snow, flower beds, and now followed the water flowed in torrents. walkway to go hard and high altitude and arrived at the hut. You can't just climb up Mt. shirouma, danger of the mountain and enjoy a luxurious transformed the tired. Course time 6 hours plus 2 hours extra you took, but walked more slowly, taking many more photos, liked the scenery and atmosphere.
