The sun is out once again above Nozawa this morning and it's basically another lovely warm spring morning; and we're expecting similar for tomorrow and Sunday as well. Clouds might move in on Monday to be followed by some rain.
Even though only Tuesday next week is a holiday (followed by the Monday and Tuesday of the next week), tomorrow is officially the start of the Golden Week period. Presumably some lucky people are going to have longer off work!
