Good morning from Yuzawa.

Sadly it did start to rain in the afternoon yesterday and while it was on and off at times, heavy rain was falling later on last night. It's still wet though should be drying up this morning and it should be clearer skies by the end of the day.

Tomorrow should be dry and there's a chance that the sun will be making an appearance (sun/cloud on the forecast) and once again temperatures should be rising to around 20 degrees during the day.

It was in the local newspaper the a few days ago how visitor numbers to ski resorts in Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma have generally decreased this season - not really surprising given the shorter season and lack of the consistent snow that we usually have. The same report though did note that the number of foreigners visiting increased by 50% which is impressive. No doubt that number will continue to increase in the coming years.
