Hello from Hakuba.

There is a bit of fresh snow being reported by Goryu (5cm), Happo-one (3cm) and Cortina (10cm) and some fresh to be seen to areas around base levels too... but rain is what is happening now, even at higher elevations.

Hopefully it will sooner-than-later changing into snow and in my report tomorrow I will have some fresh cm down to village to report.
