Clear and sunny blue skies

Fine and clear sunny skies this morning in Shiga Kogen.
Apart from the chance of a bit of rain tomorrow and more cloud, we're hoping for more like today over the coming weekend.
The section of Route 292 that connects Shiga Kogen with Gunma Prefecture opens tomorrow morning (Friday 24th) with - if I am not mistaken - a bit of a ceremony planned at 10am. After that, you can drive through between Shiga Kogen and Kusatsu in Gunma.
