The snow is falling—just not enough of it quite yet. Not a lot of accumulation following the 10cm or so that we had at the end of the day yesterday; this morning it's falling very lightly, but things are also turning a bit bright out there. Myoko-san (the mountain) has just peeked out as the sky clears. The peak is beautifully white, but unfortunately there just hasn't been enough to even think about opening the ski areas (see the original plans below; now all areas are saying, "when the snow falls...").

If you're here in town early, and I know people have been coming earlier and earlier from overseas, despite warnings from locals, there's always some fishing over on Lake Nojiri, strolls around town—it does look great here in the snow, so head out to Naena Waterfall or something!
