Shocking news this morning in that there's no new overnight snowfall to report. I think we'll manage for a few days with what we got!

So a cloudy start to the morning here in Nozawa Onsen and that's about it really. Cold temperatures still, doesn't feel as quite as cold this morning to me, but still keeping the snow in great shape.

Chance of some light snow tonight overnight into tomorrow but we're expecting to get to see the sun and hopefully some blue skies tomorrow. Temperatures might even nudge up into positive numbers as well tomorrow. Not too much please!

Tuesday - chance of rain in the village before turning into snow.

Big 'Nasuki' news!

The Nozawa mascot character 'Nasuki', who looks suspiciously like a big friendly smiley green vegetable with arms and feet), is out on the slopes every Saturday and Sunday - specifically in the Hikage Kids Park area. If you see Nasuki, you're instructed to shout out 'Nasuki' in a loud voice and you might get a big wave back. Big kids also hopefully welcome! Just to be sure that you get the correct big friendly smiley green vegetable with arms and feet, I have added a photo below.

Nozawana is in fact a famous green vegetable from the area, popular in pickles and other dishes. In fact, this is what Wikipedia says about it:

Nozawana (野沢菜) is a Japanese leaf vegetable, often pickled. It is of the same species as the common turnip and one of a Japanese variety of mustard leaf. Its leaves are approximately 60–90cm long. Sometime between 1751 and 1764 it was taken by a master of a Buddhist temple who lived in Nozawa from the Kyoto mountains to the Nozawa-onsen village. It was cultivated around that area, and thus named Nozawana: na means vegetable in Japanese.

So there you go! :)
