Today the sky was gorgeous in the morning but during the day became cloudy. But still a very good day for Shiga Kogen guests!
This picture, taken this morning, shows 2 typical trees in Shiga Kogen. Shirakaba or Japanese White Birch (Betula platyphylla var. japonica), on the left, and Dakekamba or Erman's Birch (Betula ermanii), on the right. In the background you can see Nishitateyama and Higashitateyama ski fields.
