Conditions at Tenjin were full-on yesterday. Probably the limit of how deep it could be and still be possible to ski. They got an even bigger dump overnight but it came with strong winds which appear to have mostly subsided this morning. Its still fierce outside and have my doubts about whether they open today. I wouldn't expect anything before noon but on days like today, Hodaigi and Okutone generally fire on 8 cylinders. If you are after a turbo-charged snow fest, they will likely be the spots.
