Good morning from Yuzawa.

And the news is in... Kagura has announced that Sunday 22nd May will be the last day of the season.

From today, 600m of the main Kagura run remains open and that is serviced by the Kagura Number 1 romance pair lift. That is the plan for these last 7 days, all being well.

Kagura have done well remaining open for so long I think all things being considered. But it is good to have some definite news.

It's sunny this morning with a high of 25C expected in town, while tomorrow will be cooler with some rain forecast for the morning. After that, generally clear and sunny weather is forecast for the rest of the week and into next weekend.

Monday 16th May 2016:

Kagura

600m course at Kagura and 4 items at Kagura Park remain open - get there via the Mitsumata Ropeway and Kagura Gondola.
On the way back to the Mitsumata Ropeway at the end of the day you can ski back down the Mitsumata plastic snow mat course if you like - or if you don't like doing that, you can ride the Mitsumata Number 1 quad lift back down.
All other resorts in Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma are now closed for the season.
