Much warmer conditions out there today compared to yesterday. Still the one lift open for skiing as per yesterday. Turns up on the mountain yesterday were fun with light snow falling in the afternoon. No new snow fell last night and its a little crunchy underfoot down in the village here with the snow softening throughout the day. This morning's turns were very pleasant on the groomed runs of Ace 3 but most of the good stuff at the side of the runs is tracked out. The snow starved skiers of opening day have seen to that. There are still skiers going off trail and skiing down the main runs which is currently forbidden. Ski patrol seem to be turning a blind eye to some of them, but its not a wise move this early in the season.

Friday's drumming at Seicomart which we reported as a season opening ceremony was actually the opening of the new 'security centre' adjacent to Seicomart. This is a new kind of support centre for safety and security in the village, as well as a general information centre. It will be used in a similar way to a 'koban' or police box, however no police will man the office. There is one foreigner and some of the staff from SunSports information centre (Hirafu Shibu) who will be working at the centre.

The site was formerly used as the Kumagorou cafe 2 seasons ago. The local community hope that in the future the police will eventually take over this office to provide a stronger presence than currently exists.
Although our village is probably one of the safest ski resorts in the world with very little petty crime to speak of, it is interesting that the establishment of this centre coincides with increased security measures at all airports in Japan last week. From 19 November, all foreigners entering Japan regardless of their purpose of travel (business or pleasure) will be fingerprinted and photographed. The new security laws are explained as anti-terrorism and with the G8 summit taking place just an hours drive from here in Toya next summer, one can perhaps understand the locals feeling a little bit apprehensive about another massive influx of foreigners this coming winter.
