Happy Valentines Day from Nozawa Onsen.
Waking up to clear blue skies here today and light winds for what should be nothing short of a perfect day for all lovers of the slide on the slopes today.
Yesterday was a bit of a surprise package with snow falling all day and heavy at times. Have not put together the official figures but a few people told me there was between 15 and 20cm fall up top.
Chilly start to the day but should warm up as the sun does its job. Snow expected to start up again tonight and into tomorrow with a pretty good snow, sun, snow rhythm ahead over the next week.
Nozawa seems to be a bit of a village of love maybe due to all the “Dosojin” or Fertility Gods that you see in front of all the houses and every year we get a few proposals taking place. This year cupid has struck again and a big congratulations to a couple of members of the Nozawa Holidays team who got engaged just yesterday! Enjoy the day and don’t get too close to the Dosojin as you never know what may happen!
