Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday the early clouds cleared leaving us with a beautiful day. Not too hot, just about right.

Today the sun is out from early on and it's destined to get hotter - it's forecast to rise above 25C for town this afternoon.

And more clear and sunny skies tomorrow too.

Golden Week

Golden Week is a period from the end of April through early May containing a number of national holidays. Those holidays are as follows:

- 29th April is 'Showa Day' (Showa-no-hi), the birthday of former Emperor Showa
- 3rd May is 'Constitution Day' (Kenpo-kinenbi)
- 4th May is 'Greenery Day' (Midori-no-hi)
- 5th May is 'Children's Day' (Kodomo-no-hi)

What this means for 2018 is that most people will enjoy two long weekends - 3 days this upcoming weekend and then 4 days off the weekend after:

Long Weekend #1: Saturday 28th April - Monday 30th April
Long Weekend #2: Thursday 3rd - Sunday 6th May

Some people may even be lucky enough to have/take Tuesday and Thursday off next week, giving them a long 9 day holiday!

The weather is often really good over the Golden Week period and of course the end of Golden Week is also the end of ski lift operations at Tashiro, but Kagura plans to remain open beyond that date through until later in May.
