Kusatsu-shirane Climbing Notes

Kohaku from JAPAN writes:

Because of the eruption on January 23rd, the warning was raised to level 3. You cannot approach Shirane.

It is too bad you will not be able to see the crater lake, but I hope you have a nice time in Kusatsu anyway! The weather has been very mild recently.
