From the Hakuba hut to the summit of Shirouma-dake

All clouds went down, a sea of clouds appeared. Ascent to the summit of Shirouma-dake1 takes only about 15 minutes. You can see a 360 degree panorama at the summit.

  1. 白馬岳(しろうまだけ). “岳” means mountain. In Japanese, a name of mountains is used “山” or “岳” in general. “山”, which is exemplified by Mt. Fuji(富士山・ふじさん), is used for a single peak mountain and usually it’s gentle rather than steep. “岳”, which is exemplified by Tsurugi-dake(剱岳・つるぎだけ), is used for a peak in a mountain range and usually it’s steep rather than gentle.
