Myoko Kogen Snow Report

Stop sign?? Snow means no!

It’s been a huge morning here with 40cm plus already and looks like it’s going to keep puking it’s guts out for the next couple of days. It was a late start to the cool change and we had a bit of rain yesterday afternoon, but in the night the temps dropped and it started snowing and now it is coming down HARD! There will be fun times ahead for those in Myoko.

Special request. We need an Australian family to be interviewed by NHK TV on January 23. If you are going to be visiting Myoko around this time please contact us urgently!
