Kusatsu & Kawarayu 2011 : Yugama (Spring pot)

sponsored link

Now we can’t go near the Yugama, but it is still worth to visit !

It took 30 minutes by bus from Kusatsu onsen bus terminal bus stop to  Mt.Shirane-zan.
I got to there around 10 a.m. and I found it was so cold ! Yes ! Shirane-zan is over 2000m tall !

草津温泉バスターミナルからでている白根山行きのバスで30分くらいかな?10時ごろ着くと、激寒!さすが標高2000m超え!

It was already May, but there remained many snows !

After I got off the bus, at first, I saw Yumiike pond in front of the bus stop.

At first it seemed very cold because there was still many snows. But the water wasn’t too cold and birds seemed to be very comfortable.
The pellucid pond was beautiful.

雪があるから冷たいかな?と思ったけれど、水はそれほど冷たくもなく、鳥たちも気持ち良さそうでした(^^)

水が澄んでてきれい

It seemed to be good for drinking because it is clear…. but actually it have much detrimental components by volucanic eruption 😛

あまりに澄んでいるので、手ですくって飲んでみたい衝動に駆られますが(笑)・・・ダメですよ

I wanted to see that Horai-iwa closer.

I came closer, but it seemed not be able to be climbed.

近くまで来ましたが、登ることはできないようです。残念。

And then, I went toward Yugama (pot) that was my target of this trip.

The mountain that have pavement to the point that can be seen Yugama well had much snow enough to skiing 🙂

湯釜を見学できる遊歩道に向かう山では、まとまった雪があり、スキーしてる人もいました。

ミルキーなエメラルドグリーンがこのカメラでは表現できません( ´゚д゚`)

中央あたりが灰色に渦巻いています・・・。
There was grey water around the center.
