It's a colder morning than it has been and cloudier and foggier too.... there's a real murky kind of feel to the day today so far with a bit of wind blowing about the fog and cloud. Not the friendliest of conditions that's for sure.

Things should be much better for the weekend though and the start of Golden Week. We are promised clear skies and the sun warming things up for pretty much all of the coming long weekened. So it should be a good first half to Golden Week (remember Monday is a national holiday).

It has been very quiet this week in Shiga Kogen, but especially with the good forecast weather we can expect many more people out on the slopes tomorrow.

I'll post another update on Tuesday with news on how the second half of Golden Week looks to be shaping up. Enjoy the weekend.

Higashitateyama
Terakoya
Tannenomori Okujo
Ichinose Family
