Joel skied again today and Stuart and I walked around the village in the beautiful warm sun. It was still cold though and freezing in the shade. The whole village seamed to be out clearing snow. They were using everything from shovels to huge backhoes, clearing roads, driveways, footpaths, awnings and roofs. We saw Joel as he was having an early lunch. He ...

... food yummy, interesting and the service friendly. Again we were chaufered.
Weather that causes Akakura snow. The cold winds from Sibera blow across the warm sea picking up moisture and as soon as the go over the land again they drop it as snow. They get snow on the beaches near here. Akakura village where we are is only about 600m in elevation and Myoko San (Mt Myoko) is about 2600m, only a few 100m higher than Mt Kosiousico. Japanese words are much easier to spell.

Caught train from Tokyo to Nagano station. Took 1 hour and a half. Then took local train to togironozawa onsen which took at hour. As we go deeper into the mountains the snow gets thicker and excitement grows. The magic of snow is reflected in some school kids eyes who are I am guessing on a school camp. Although I can not understand what they are saying their smiles, laughter and eager stares out the window show that the snow is exciting not ...
