  • Nikko Yumoto out free bus to round Lake plateau, so I went on it. Aerial tramway is one way 15 minutes. While one can see people camping and summer ski slopes go up steep slopes. From the summit station Shirane mountain climbing 5 to 6 hours of real climbing is around 45 minutes and there are two two-hour walking tour. It started raining as soon as we got to the station, in a mountaintop Cafe murasame Amazake while small 1-hour rain, as we walked the short 45-minute nature walks. Most in the Woods rather than the difference between the high and low since attention is required at the feet. You can and several forest quiz Billboard Japan paper company-owned forests, so I stopped to catch my breath. (2000 m above sea level, so the steep climb off breath. ) Is overlooking Mt. Shirane and mount hiuchigatake has a good vantage point along the way two, so far, without the fog. Because this course is short and firm shoes even handed OK a it seems. Rock Garden shoes are unreliable, spread in front of the station and the foot here. Rock Garden is possible thistle, dicentra and see many more alpine plants if the July, early August visit. You can enjoy the spectacular foot soak can be found close to the Summit of Mount Nikkō-Shirane, overlooking mountains, such as Mt. shibutsu. When I went was gas, Shirane mountain top view, Mt. shibutsu also seemed slightly. This is the meet this spectacular aerial tramway with the bus went for the first time, but it's moving.

  • Its elevation is 2,578 m, the highest mountain in Kanto North. In the two and half hours to walk from the top station of the aerial tramway to the Summit. Walk the area surrounded by forests in the first half, but beyond the Timberline in the middle and open views. Clouds covered up quickly you spread sunshine and changeable weather is near the Summit. Because there are places such as Cliff Summit is very carefully. Time is not long, but the level between beginner and intermediate?
