Morning from Hakuba.

Yesterday - lovely, warm, toasty. (Our Niseko Now friend would have liked that!)

This morning - it's a national holiday and unfortunately... it's raining. Even higher up by the looks. We hope that by this afternoon the clouds will have cleared and the sun will be out. It's going to be another day with temperatures getting close to approaching 20C in the village, which is more like late April than todays day.

But tomorrow should see temps taking something of a drop and get back to something more like normal.
