It is a warm and overcast morning in Shiga Kogen. Just cloudy at the moment but there is a chance of rain later on today apparently. It will generally be a faily warm week, but colder temperatures seem likely once again by the weekend and early next week.

Good news for if you want to get to Shiga Kogen via Gunma - from tomorrow (21st April) the section of Route 292 that connects Shiga Kogen with Kusatsu in Gunma will open once again after being closed for the winter months. This now only opens up Shiga Kogen to a lot more people coming from the east but a lot of people also use the road just to check out walls of snow along the roadsides... an impressive sight.
