Good morning from Nozawa.

Early report this morning.

We are expecting some precipitation today; hopefully some snow.

But as we continue to wait for snow, some exciting news...

---

The Nagasaka Gondola at Nozawa Onsen first opened in 1979.

The current set up has a mid-station - Yunomine - before continuing up to the top Yamabiko area.

That is set to change come late 2020, in time for the 2020-2021 winter season.

The resort is building a brand-new gondola that will go straight up from the Nagasaka base to a new top Yamabiko station. There will be no mid-station, just one straight line up to the upper Yamabiko area.

The new gondola will have a length of 3129m and each cabin will seat 10 people. The trip up to the top from base will take about 8 minutes. It looks like the gondola cabins are going for a luxurious feel with really comfortable seats and there will a lot of glass windows too (including part of the floor), so there should be really good scenery on the way up.

Check out the Nagasaka webcam image below (the 5th photo) and see if you can spot any ‘new’ towers!

The resort will also be re-doing the base station too.

Excite!
