Good morning from Yuzawa.

Yesterday was pretty wild weather. It was cold, there was really poor visibility up on the mountain for most of the time. It rained heavily down in town for a short while... and it was actually snowing in higher areas!

And actually, Kagura are saying that light snow was falling at the main Kagura area as of 6am this morning! (Not any more).

It isn't a warm start, but it is going to be warming up a little today, with a high of just under 20C expected.

There's some blue sky around as well early on so should be more friendly weather.

And tomorrow will be getting much warmer - perhaps as much as 25C in town.

Tomorrow is the last day of the season for the Tashiro area of Kagura. From Monday, just Kagura will remain open.
