Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was rather overcast in the end but warm. Today is starting off clearer... and warmer. Up to 15C and possibly beyond today.

If I wasn't suffering from some itchy and sore eyes and sneezing uncontrollably at times due to hay fever, I'd be out myself! Pollen aside, it is a beautiful morning!

Tomorrow is a national holiday in Japan - Vernal Equinox Day.
