Morning from Hakuba, and it's a wet one. The rain is coming down, the roads are wet, the mountains are not visible due to the cloud cover and visibility up on the slopes looks poor up there. At least it isn't freezing cold up there, but I think lots of people might well decide to take the day off today and soak in an onsen!

Tomorrow should be much nicer with sun forecast and the mercury likely to rise to perhaps around 18C.... and even higher on Wednesday.
