Temperatures have been dropping across Japan, bringing the season’s first snow.
Nagano received its first snow of the season just the night before last nearby in Hakuba. The Karasawa Hutte sitting at just over 2300 m received a nice dusting. It is surrounded by 4 peaks that are all over 3000m and they were looking nice and white with a fresh cover of snow too.
This is however not the first snow for Japan this season. In northern Japan, Hokkaido’s Daisetsuzan park received about 5cm of snow on the 18th of September this area in Kurodake is often the first place to see snow in Japan and was nice and early this year.
The first snow also fell in Northern Honshu in Aomori on Mt. Iwaki on the 15th of October, which is 13 days earlier than last year. The forecast for the next couple weeks has low temperatures and high precipitation so fingers crossed for some early powder this year. Kurodake up in the very North is showing some impressive snow numbers and sub zero temps for just over a weeks time.
Very early days yet but always something special after such a hot Summer to see the first snow starting to fall around the country. As usual Japan and the Four Seasons are running like clockwork. Nozawa Onsen is hoping to open the end of November. To celebrate the first snow we are doing an Early December Special.
