Yesterday ended up being an overcast kind of day.

It was busy out there again. It was on the evening local news where the Kagura resort seemed to be reporting 4,200 people on Monday and hoping for over 37,000 people to visit over the Golden Week. Those would seem to be good numbers and certainly a lot more than last year, though last year was of course special circumstances.

This morning the sun is out and it is bright and more blue than yesterday. 19C at 9am with a high of around 25C forecast for later on.

There's also a fairly strong wind blowing this morning and it's affecting the lifts open. Looks like the choice this morning is Mitsumata Ropeway to Kagura No1 quad at Kagura and part of Kandatsu Kogen. (Naeba, the Tashiro area of Kagura and Gala Yuzawa are closed because of the wind).

Hopefully less wind tomorrow but a good chance that we will have some rain falling in the region.
