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.

I will stay in Kusatsu onsen from March 25, 2018 through March 28, 2018. Can I climb the Shirane mount during these date?
