It’s been snowing up on the Hakuba peaks and everybody’s talking about it. There was a dusting up high last week as I mentioned in a previous blog but this time we can all see it on the mountains. They have been shrouded in cloud the last few days but this morning it cleared enough to confirm what was on every locals mind. We have all been adding an extra layer of clothing due to the cold and the discussions around town have been snow hyped. The summer tourists who come to escape the heat are moving away and are replaced by us snow addicts who just can’t get enough of the stuff. Its time to start thinking about your next snow holiday in Japan.
