Things are starting to heat up now.

I saw on the news last night that in some areas of Hokkaido it was as hot as 30 degrees yesterday! That's just wild - hotter than summer kind of numbers. It hasn't been getting that hot here, but still temperatures likely to hit 20 degrees in Kutchan today and double digit temperatures higher up on the mountain too.

The weekly forecast remains that same - generally lots of sun and warmth. Having said that it's a very hazy and kind of overcast start to the day here this morning.

Golden Week 2015:

Wednesday April 29th - 'Showa Day'
Thursday April 30th - normal weekday
Friday May 1st - normal weekday
Saturday May 2nd - normal Saturday
Sunday May 3rd - 'Constitution Memorial Day'
Monday May 4th - 'Greenery Day'
Tuesday May 5th - 'Childrens Day'
Wednesday May 6th - 'Constitution Memorial Day' holiday (a proper holiday as it falls on the Sunday)

So a lot of people will effectively get tomorrow as a holiday and then a run of 5 days from Saturday until Wednesday next week.

Remember, Niseko Village resort will be (part) opening up again from Wednesday and open daily until Wednesday next week.
