The sky is clearer and I can see the beautiful mountains this morning.
It was super icy yesterday but it looks much warmer today, I hope ice will melt and become softer. I will go to Annupuri today, Annupuri is less steeper than other resorts so it’s more relax and fun on groomers. Today is called “Hinamatsuri” a festival celebrating girls in Japan. People celebrate the health and happiness of girls. Families with girls display dolls in their home representing the emperor, empress and attendants, dressed in traditional clothing.
A few more warm and sunny days and winter will come back, hopefully.
