Morning from Yuzawa.

Some strong winds and heavy rain overnight and it is still raining this morning.

GALA Yuzawa are open again today, though both Kagura and Naeba have some restrictions. Kagura is open up to the Kagura Gondola. They were planning on having the Number 1 pair lift moving but wind is stopping that from happening at the moment.

So it is not a particularly nice morning.

(Having said that as I am about to post this report it seems to be getting a bit brighter and less rain...)

Tomorrow should be calmer and clearer and the sun will be warming us up again.
