It Turned to Snow.

The beautiful weather, which turned to rain, has finally turned into snow. And the good news is that it is supposed to stay like this for three days. This is very exciting news for a little mountain village that is only in operation for six months of the year, solely for tourists which travel here for Winter sports. Of course there are many activities to do here during the Summer, like mountain hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, etcetera, however, the snow generates the most business and is renowned for being the best in the world.

Some photos of the weather from recent weeks..

It Turned to Snow
The trees are white again.

There is just something so beautiful about the blue and white generated by the snow and a perfect blue sky. I can't get enough. To see the rest of my Japan photos, please click here.
