Guess that's the age where students have money and still deciding what to so with their free time? Perhaps that's the core age to keep them interested and also to bring youth into the area? Seems a great offer and hopefully it will work.


Saw on a news story that in some areas of fukushima, there is only 1 young person out of every 3 people. Although don't know what they classified as young.

That's about right Karnidge.

A few years ago I was eating at the restaurant just below the top gondola station at Akakan (Myoko) when 2 little grey haired Japanese ladies come over for a chat, they had done a tour to Cairns & Ayers Rock & were keen to practice their Australian/engrish - I don't know why they were attracted to me - maybe it's because I look older than I am or maybe I am older than I look. Any way they told me they were 80 years old which amazed me as they wer definately in ski gear. I said to them "surely you are not 80 but you are 40 each".

WELL - they did not stop giggling for about 10 minutes. I think I made their day, or year. Anyway they went ouside clipped in and took off down hill.

I hope I am still enjoying it that much at 80
