Hello from Nozawa.

Some snow overnight and during the day yesterday, though not a large number from lower areas but note that the top area reporting 30+cm since yesterday morning. So the powder refreshes continue.

This morning started with a lot of dark looking clouds around but it has quickly brightened up and right now the sun is increasingly shining down on us all. It should be a very fine day.

Monday is a national holiday in Japan, so it's one of those long weekends and usually a busy one.

15th January is always an important date in Nozawa with the famous fire festival. This year the event is going ahead, but there are going to be restrictions for the main event on 15th. Basically the general public aren't going to be allowed into the central event area and there will be entry restrictions around the area from 3pm until 11pm. There are no restrictions planned for the lead up events held on the 13th and 14th, apart from everyone being asked to be good and take precautions.
