Mount Kusatsu-Shirane

0 0 Review

Mount Kusatsu-Shirane (or Mount Shirane) is an active stratovolcano in Kusatsu, Gunma Prefecture. This 2,160-meter tall volcano has had notable eruptions in 1983 and 2018. There are three crater lakes at the summit of Mount Kusatsu-Shirane. The largest is Yu-gama crater lake; with its turquoise blue waters and rafts of yellow sulfur, it makes for a striking and mysterious vista to all who visit. It is also the most acidic lake in Japan.

Notice

As of January 23, 2018, the summit of the volcano has been off-limits to the public. This closure includes the three crater lakes.
