It felt strange watching the Japanese news last night with heavy snowfall in Tokyo and other areas. A very large number of people being inconveniences by snow that they don't expect. Looking at the reports, more snow had fallen in central Tokyo than in Yuzawa. Very strange - one of those 'what's wrong with this picture?' moments!

Here we just had 5-10cm of wet, heavy snow by the end of the day.

This morning is a different story though and it feels like a proper Snow Country kind of morning. Nice big flakes of snow are coming down from the skies with some real speed and purpose at the moment. This is what we like to see.

I had to move 20cm of snow this morning and with the way it is falling right now I expect that to quickly increase. Around town resorts are reporting about 20-30cm of new snowfall, Naeba saying up to 40cm has fallen since yesterday.

Resorts seem to begenerally open as normal except the top areas of Naeba and the Tashiro part of Kagura.

Very poor visibility out though even low down in town and with some strong winds as well it's not the most hospitably of conditions. The snowfall is forecast to continue into tomorrow morning.
