The snow arrived around 11am yesterday, hearing there was already 30cm at higher elevations by late yesterday afternoon. The snowfall then intensified overnight and in terms of my car park, I cleared 10cm at 5pm and another 55cm early this morning. It's still dumping.

Tenjin is postponed, possibility of closure all day due to strong winds.

Hodaigi has 30-35cm low down and is the spot today I think. Question mark over there top lifts due to wind.

It's a big storm and is forecast to continue through the day before dropping off this evening.

Clear weather expected tomorrow, more snow on Saturday through Monday.
