Good morning from Hakuba.

Actually it's not a very nice morning.

Heavy rain overnight and this morning with rain still falling now, though less than it has been just for the moment. Rain is due to continue until tomorrow.

It's almost a bit chilly as well this morning and with temperatures set to drop further tomorrow as well, some snow might even fall at higher elevations. A bit of fresh up there would be good to see...

Golden Week holidays starting from tomorrow.
