Greetings from here in Zao Onsen where we have some snow to report. Not a huge amount, just 1cm here at base and so hopefully a good bit more higher up.

You may have noticed on the new yesterday that there was an strong earthquake off the east costs of Fukushima yesterday morning. We felt it pretty strong here as well, a shindo 4 on the Japanese scale. Let's hope that's the last time for a long time, I can do without that feeling!

Anyway back to the happy subject of snowfall once again. The forecast for the coming week is looking mixed - there's chances of snowfall on and off but nothing major by the looks. Zao Onsen doesn't tend to give an 'opening date', rather something more like 'early December'. I'm sure that once enough snow does actually fall here, the lifts will start moving.

Not long now. Keep your eyes on the forecast, and I'll be back in a few days...
