A beautiful day yesterday in Zao Onsen and some fine 'ice monster scenery' to be had with some deep blue skies as background. Lovely. Yes, it warmed up, but not tooooo much.

This morning there's much more cloud around and it's a chilly morning. Hopefully it will stay so for the day as tomorrow that inevitable warm up seems to still be on the cards. No fresh snow likely through until at least next week (if anything we might see a spot of rain just before the weekend).

Let's see how it all pans out...
