Hi , im planning to drive from Kusatsu to Shiga Koen on 21 apr via route 292 May i know when route 292 is open this year?
Thanks for your question.
This year, the Shiga-Kusatsu Route is planned to open on April 19th, 2019 at 10:00am.
Let me know if I can help with anything else.
Thanks Blair for your reply.
Just to confirm,
there was an announcement of route closure near Mt Shirane’s area. Will this area of the route 292 be closed after 19 Apr?
While the route was closed last year due to volcanic activity, steps have been taken to ensure safety along the route and it is planned to open on time on April 19th, 2019 at 10:00 am.
