Morning from Shiga Kogen.

Well, yesterday was a warm one throughout Japan it would seem. Apparently, it was a crazy 22C in Nagano city yesterday, and as high as 15C here in Shiga Kogen, which is just a bit mad.

And last night we had rain.

It feels damp this morning and there is a lot of fog around so visibility is limited.

Perhaps inevitably, there is some 'closed' news this morning - the Kumanoyu areas has unfortunately had to close today though it appears that the other three areas remain open.

Basically, we really need snow. Everyone is hoping that this coming weekend delivers - the forecasts look promising...
