Good morning from Niseko.

A lot of cloud around this morning but some clearer areas and we might get sun at times during the day today. And tomorrow too.

And it looks like it shouldn't be warming up too much.

-----

A personal note.

Let me note what my colleague down in Hakuba has posted this morning. After actually talking with them yesterday, I know that I certainly share their feelings.

Due to its location, Hakuba in particular has large amount of guests coming in from those particular areas.

Regarding Niseko. I believe that it is now actually physically difficult to get up here (from afar). I am guessing that the few people that are still out on the mountain here are either people who live nearby, or people who were already here.

In general, I would say that people staying at home sounds like a very sound idea to me. I had been encouraged by the relatively low numbers that Japan was reporting, but with the numbers increasing and cities seemingly still relatively busy... it worries me.

I will continue to post my updates here to complete the record of the season.

Stay safe and take care.
