My wife and I climbed Nikko Shirane-san. We took Nikko Shirane-san cable car and started hiking from the mountain station. It was a sunny Sunday during three day weekend, so it was very crowded. The fall colors have just started. When we got to the summit we were surrounded by clouds and didn't have any view. We were disappointed.
