Here it comes.... Things are white outside at the moment. Still some grass poking through around the house, but the weather report is for possible heavy snow along the Japan Sea coast in the Hokuriku area. Meaning us. National broadcaster NHK just said there might be 60cm in some mountain areas. That would start getting us set up!

First day below zero; first day to use the yellow, lined gloves that are the sign of a local (and they make a great gift).

Hope to have news of lots of wet stuff tomorrow.

Official opening dates:
Akakura Onsen and Akakura Kanko: December 20
