It was just cloudy earlier on when I first looked out of the window this morning but rain is falling at the moment. Can't see much of the mountains as they are shrouded in cloud. And you know what, it looks like it is snowing at higher elevations taking a look at the Happo and 47 webcams right now. Yes, certainly looks like it, though visibility looks poor. Though I might just have to get up there to confirm!

The forecast seems to be telling us to expect similar conditions tomorrow as well.

Golden Week starts tomorrow with a 3-day long weekend in Japan. We then have three 'normal' weekdays, followed by a 4-day holiday run from next Friday until the following Monday. That last day of Golden Week of course also marks the end of the season for all of the ski resorts in Hakuba and Otari (though unofficially there's still lots of snow left in the mountains of course...)
