Morning from Hakuba.

A beautiful day yesterday with blue skies, sunshine and some cloud. Dare I say it, especially around lower areas, there was a bit of a 'early spring' feel, though still some very nice snow conditions to enjoy higher up. That's what I experienced anyway.

There appears to be more cloud around early this morning and a bit more subdued, but blue sky and sun are expected today. It has been quite cold overnight and early on but will be warming up to maybe around +5C in the village this afternoon.

And a bit of a warm up looks like what will get over the next week - apart from around Thursday when there's that rain/snow event.
