Early this morning it is raining... and it has been since last night actually. It's not quite cold enough for snow unfortunately but we are into April, so it can only be expected. We still want it to not rain though and I hope that it will stop around lunchtime or early afternoon.

Clearer weather on it's way for the weekend and in particular maybe a fine and sunny day on Sunday.

Nighta tonight is planned at the following resort:
- Ichinose Family
