Good morning from Niseko.

It's lovely and sunny this morning. It might get a bit windy later on but for now things seem ok and the lifts are moving as planned.

Snow is getting thinner with more bare ground seen, but hey we are at the end of April - this time next week it will be officially the last day of the ski season for the resorts.

---

It's Golden Week and it runs right through until the last day of the ski season on Monday 6th May.

What's today?

>> Today is Shōwa Day (昭和の日 Shōwa-no-Hi)

It honors the birthday of Emperor Shōwa (Hirohito), the reigning emperor from 1926 to 1989. Shō (昭) means “shining” or “bright”, and wa (和) means “peace”, signifying the "enlightened peace" that citizens receive. According to the now defunct Democratic Party of Japan, the purpose of the holiday is to encourage public reflection on the turbulent 63 years of Hirohito's reign.
