    Thanks David. It is tomorrow evening like 7 PM departure and arrival around 10PM that we plan on. Now I have to worry about Kannetsu exit and weather in the mountains.

    Tire requirements after north Kannetsu Exit

    Thanks Mina and Muikabochi. I just do not want to get a surprise change in weather and get stuck. Looking at the report it seems to be ok. I wonder if there is a live cam after the Kannetsu exit, or any reports from travelers. To Snowjapan staff: Thank you so much for such a great website and the benefit it provides to us via this Forum. If you have any updates, please post a reply, I will be checking them. Thanks again.
  4. Greetings, I am planning to go to Naeba tomorrow, March 1st in the evening, and return back on March 3 also in the evening. I plan to take the Kanetsu Expressway and then the Tsukiono by-pass, (hwy 17 or Mikuni Hwy), until I get to Naeba. My concern is the requirement to have chains at the North exit of the Kannetsu Tunnel, and when the road elevation increases by Lake Ayase into Naeba. Today is raining here in Tokyo. Please let me know how it was at night for those who travelled today during the rain. If it is not a snowy day, do they still require chains at the tunnel exit? Not sure what the weather will be like for Friday but I want to have an idea of what is like now and tonight. I have regular tires and because of almost end of Winter, I am having a hard time finding chains. Thanks.
