General message from SnowJapan (added 20th April 2020):

I hope everyone is keeping well.

There is some news on this last day of the eerily quiet 'Golden Week'.

The Yokoteyama/Shibutoge area have made an announcement...

Agree with the idea or not, they plan to re-open tomorrow, Thursday 7th May.

It looks like the Shibutoge pair lift will be operating.

They are asking that people who are not residents of Nagano or Gunma Prefectures to 'show restraint' and to comply with current requests from local authorities.

They are also asking that people who are residents of Nagano or Gunma Prefectures and using a car with a number plate from outside of those two prefectures to print out something from their website that proclaims that the car is actually being driven by a resident of Nagano or Gunma - or by someone who has been in the prefecture for over two weeks. And that you are a 'healthy' skier or snowboarder.

By the way, as far as I can tell this information is not officially available in English; this is me translating the original Japanese message.

If you plan to go be sure to check before making a trip. Both on the status of the ski area and the status of the road if you plan to come from Gunma. (As of 6th May it is closed, the only approach being from Yamanouchi).

I'm out of the area at the moment. I will try to check in about once a week until they close up.
