Grey skies hovering over the Village in Nozawa today and not a lot to report on the snow front. They were expecting a little up top but hard to tell if it arrived as the top is shrouded in fog.
Yesterday was a picture perfect day with lots of blue skies and sunshine. With the lifts not in operation yet a few of the gang here were keen to go on a hike into some snow country. They set off to nearby Mt Izuna and the Togakushi area.
Deep in the forest there is an Inner Shrine, which is located 2km along an impressive route lined with huge cedar trees that are hundreds of years old. They say you can feel the power of nature here and those trees certainly make you feel pretty small. Thanks to Angelica for the great photo
