(Small Notes for the Issue)

R247: Hakusan (literally meaning "white mountain") is one of the three most popular mountains in Japan as objects of religious worship and for climbing. On the summit are three central domes, Gozengamine (2,702 meters / 8,864 fet), Oonanjigamine (2,684 meters / 8,805 feet) and Kengamine (2,677 meters / 8,782 feet). Alpine flora and birds abound there.
