Hello from Zao Onsen and after the clearer skies of yesterday we are back to cloudier skies this morning. It's calm though with not much of a wind and fairly mild temperatures both here in the village and up on the mountain.

Local forecasts give us a chance of clearer weather this afternoon.

Back to snow from Tuesday.

It was on the news last night about how the Ice Monsters are doing really well this year... and earlier than usual as well. That's what a fine start to the season gives you. If only we had more clearer weather days to enjoy the views.

Light up operations planned for every night now through until the end of February.

It's the Zao Juhyo Festival coming up on Saturday 31st January. 7:15pm until 8:30pm at the stage area by the Base Center at Uwanodai - be there for some traditional snow and fire themed festival fun. Below I have posted a rather scary looking photo from the festival last year!
