Morning from Hakuba.

Fine weather has been on the forecast for today - and still seems to be on some - but right now it's pretty poor visibility on mountain by the looks and a thick bank of cloud covering the mountains. It's even snowing lightly up there apparently!

Whether it will clear up or not remains to be seen - there are a few signs down here in the village - but fine weather is there on the forecast for tomorrow too.

Let's hope at least visibility improves quickly this morning.
