It's a cloudy, foggy and slightly wet start to the day in Zao this morning. Not the finest day to be out there really, but there's always the onsen. Things look set to be better over the weekend if the forecast comes out right - especially on Sunday with clear sunny weather likely - and it should be warmer as it has been a fairly chilly morning.

The Zao Echoline road which is close to Zao and a popular tourist road planned to open this morning but due to the snow still up there they have delayed that opening... without giving a definite date for that opening up. Hopefully it won't be too long though.
