Morning from Hakuba.

It was rainy conditions for lots of yesterday unfortunately, and there has been some inevitable damage to the remaining snow. Naughty rain! Still, there is a decent amount remaining higher up, so no need to panic. We should be good for Golden Week as planned.

This morning there is a lot of cloud around but clearer conditions are forecast for the day.

Sunny skies are expected tomorrow too though it's keeping fairly cool.
