This morning in Kumado area (Akakura Onsen)


The trains are now running between Tokyo and Myoko allowing everyone to get here and enjoy all this fresh snow. Still some problems with the roads and Route 18 is still partially shut with jammed trucks, cars and buses. So plan your route carefully if driving. This is the scene near Karuizawa on the opther side of Nagano.

Traffic stuck on Route 18 near Karuizawa

Yesterday the sun shone through in patches while over on the other side of the range this was the scene at Matsumoto Castle. Matsumoto is a nice day trip from Myoko that takes about two hours by train.
