It's raining this morning in Hakuba. Though I suppose we'd prefer to get the rain done and gone before Golden Week starts. And it looks like it should be clear and sunny and warm for at least the first half of Golden Week - clear conditions are forecast from tomorrow right through until at least Tuesday. Warm as well and we will more than likely see it warm up to 20C and possibly above over the weekend.

It's a bit cooler today actually because of the rainy conditions with a high of around 14C which is about what we are on now. There's a bit of wind early on, and perhaps stronger winds later bit later - always a chance that they might affect lifts, but hopefully not...
