It's a fine morning in Zao Onsen. Blue skies and just a few clouds. The sun is out. All is calm. It's rather mild though and now about +1c here in the village area.

No new snow to report.

It should be snowing overnight tonight though, but we may get a bit of rain before that in the village. While tomorrow should be much colder, forecasts tell us to expect more warm on Sunday. And perhaps some rain. Yuck. Strong winds probable overnight too.


Event time on Saturday. It's the annual Snow and Fire event, the main part of the Zao Juhyo Festuval. As well as watching torchlit skiing down the slopes, and fireworks, the 'yuru-character performance' has to be a highlight! Or perhaps just looking at some of the fine snow statues that have been made. Anyway the main event is from 7:30pm over in front of the Base Center in the Uwanodai area. Worth a look and hopefully the weather will co-operate.
