It's a very beautiful and sunny day today.
As most of the weekend tourists have already left, the ski area should be pretty empty today. So get out and enjoy skiing!

If you are planning ahead of time, there is a great event coming up this Thursday, January 15th - the Fire Festival here in Nozawa. It's the craziest festival I have ever seen and I highly recommend you to come to Nozawa and watch it.

It starts around 7 p.m. A tall wooden shrine is built and on top of which the 42-43 year old men of the village sit and chant. At the bottom of the shrine, the 25 year-old villagers (men only) are tied to the shrine with one hand, holding a kind of stick in the other. All the male villagers try to set the shrine on fire with buring torches and the younger guys' job is to prevent the shrine from being lit.

As all of them drink a lot of sake it can get pretty wild. It's a lot of fun to watch!
