After seeing the sun and a calm day yesterday during the daytime, snow has been delivered for this morning.

20-30cm of fresh snowfall is being reported from the different areas of the mountain this morning and I am happy to have to get out with a shovel once I have posted this report to move the 25cm or so outside. It's near on whiteout conditions on the upper areas at the moment as the snow continues to fall.

-4C at the moment and it's unlikely to warm up today at all, even if the snow eases off as is forecast.

Today is the last day of the long weekend of course, and things seem slightly less busy this morning. Expect many more people to be moving on out around lunchtime.

From tomorrow we are probably going to have clearer skies over the region, at least not much in terms of snow. Even so, it does look like it will be keeping cold, which is what we want.

So decent weather conditions likely for the upcoming 'Dosojin' Fire Festival, the main event which is on Wednesday evening, the 15th. Preparations are underway for this popular annual event in Nozawa. And of course there will be people arriving in Nozawa again to experience it.

To sum up the festival... 42 year olds climb atop a wooden shrine protected by the 25 year olds, as the rest of the villagers carry out fire attacks trying to burn down the shrine. Or something like that, but much more. It is ranked in the top three fire festivals in Japan and is always be a great spectacle. Wrap up well and enjoy the festivities in the village.
