Perennial snow patch is spreading in the straight valley extending northeast from the northern peak of Mt. Kashima-yarigatake, the northern Japanese Alps. This snow patch has been pointed out the possibility of glaciers. We installed an automatic weather station on the boulder at 1530 m altitude in the Kakunezato. Wind direction, wind speed, air temperature, humidity, solar radiation, and precipitation have been observed during from June 19, 2016 to October 20, 2016.
