Hello and welcome back to Shiga Kogen Now.

We're hopefully around a month away from the first ski lifts operating. The peak of the autumn colours has now passed up here, though it's still looking very beautiful. It has been getting colder too and we have had the first sprinklings of snow at higher elevations. It will probably be up and down a bit over the next few weeks so some more fine autumn conditions before winter arrives.

One of the first signs of winter is the famous national Route 292 road connecting Shiga Kogen with Kusatsu in Gunma closing for the winter. This year it will be closed from 1pm on Monday 17th November right through until 3pm on Friday 24th April 2015.

The Prefectural road (502) between Okushiga Kogen and Nozawa will be closed earlier, from 4th November. That road is closed right through until 5th June 2015.

We'll post more in the coming weeks as the season approaches.
