  1. Thanks muikabochi, it has been a lot of fun.

    I didn't know about that place either. Found it on a very old map. Even a few people living right there didn't know about it. I think they thought I was mad!  It's a real challenge trying to find info about some of these small places from many years back.

    I don't think there are any more Minamiuonuma surprises!



    (Let me know if/when you are up in the area).


  2. Since January I have been working on a new personal project and today, at last, I am happy to be able to share it:


    SnowJapanHistory.com is an affectionate look back at ski areas from Japan’s past.

    The site is starting off introducing 101 ski areas across 14 prefectures and there will be regular updates.

    If you are interested and check it out, please be sure to read the About page for the story behind this project and why it exists.

    Thank you.
