Good morning from the Niseko area and it's a national holiday today, Showa Day. Tomorrow and Friday are normal weekdays, but some lucky folk might well have a full week off work until next Wednesday. Ii ne!

The sun is out and there's lovely blue skies over the region early this morning. Temperatures rising above 20 this afternoon. And the forecast remains the same with these conditions continuing until the end of the week. Is that a bit of rain due as we enter next week on the forecast? I think it is.

For now though and for the next few days at least it should be fine and settled.

Today of course Niseko Village re-open and will be open daily not until next Wednesday. It sounds like they were planning on having the top Wonderland lift operating but have decided not to, so it's just the Niseko Gondola that will be operating there. The gondola is also open for sightseeing folk, so not just for skiers/boarders. It's possible to get over to Hirafu via the Gondola as well.

See you tomorrow...
