At Mt. Shirane, experience the power of an active volcano and see unusual emerald acidic lakes with yellow sulfur floating on the surface. Standing at 2,160 m (7,086 ft), the volcano attracts hikers and nature lovers year-round. In spring and summer, trek along numerous trails leading past craters, lakes, peaks, and nearby waterfalls. Ski in winter, and in fall enjoy the vibrant autumn colors. The ski ropeway and chairlift operate all year, for easy access to the summit. Due to its active volcanic nature, verify if the peak is open to the public before you go. By using our Kusatsu-machi vacation route planner, you can arrange your visit to Mt.

  • We went, with magnificent views from the risk-level 1 for the mountain found. Ride the aerial tramway, take the shuttle bus on the way to the State of the mountain seen from afar.

  • My wife and I drive. Because it's a bit cloudy, and the gas he had hardly seen anything. Staff of volcanic eruption alert level 2, and we knew couldn't get to water boiling off limits for the crater, near the Summit parking lot and rest were off-limits, Kusatsu-machi off-limits locations monitoring him, and the road to cannot be off the car was stopping prohibition, so the view was. Only drove the car while looking at view from No. It is also closes the gate to 17:00 for the route itself be closed at night, so beware. Hope the restless volcano, eruption alert level review is made.
