It's already a busy Saturday morning at Kagura - the earlier Mitsumata Ropeway opening time (7:30am until 8th May) means that people are getting over to the main Kagura area earlier to get those first runs in.

Kandatsu Kogen plans to be open until 8th May. Kagura plans to be open until 29th May.

Tomorrow will most likely see a return to rain, so get out there and enjoy the beautiful Spring weather while you can! Read more ...
