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. Put Mt.

Mt. Kusatsu-Shirane Reviews
噴火の影響で遠回りして行きましたが、御釜までは登れませんでした。通過だけです。自分が子供の頃見て今でも覚えているあのブルーを自分の子供にも見せたかったのですが、残念でした。 more »I went a long way because of the eruption, but I couldn't climb to Ogama. It's just a pass. I wanted to show my children that Blue, which I still remember when I was a child, but it was a shame.
長野方面から草津に抜けるのに白根山の横を通りますが、入山規制の範囲内なので夕方5時以降は通行止めになります。バイクやオープンカーは全日通行止めです。天気が良い日は絶景が広がっています more »It passes by Shiraneyama to get out from Nagano to Kusatsu, but it is closed after 5 o'clock in the evening because it is within the range of the iriyama regulation. Bikes and open cars are closed all day long. When the weather is nice, the scenery is wide.
Mt,Shirane claim from the parking about 20minutes very hard.But very beautiful lake waiting for you.the lake color emerald green very beautiful!
