Mt. Shirouma (白馬岳 Shirouma-dake?) is the 26th-tallest mountain in Japan. At 2,932 meters, it is the highest peak in the Hakuba section of the Hida Mountains, and one of the top "to climb" peaks for Japanese hikers. It is also one of the few peaks in Japan with year-round snow fields (Firn), in the Shirouma Dai Sekkei, or Shirouma deep-snow gorge (白馬大雪渓?). Located in the Chūbu-Sangaku National Park,[3] it is one of the 100 Famous Japanese Mountains. Alpine plants are also abundant on Shirouma in the summer.[4]
