- As expected mild weather and rain has moved over the region overnight creating a very maritime atmosphere in the village of Nozawa Onsen this morning. On the upside the rain isn’t heavy, more so persistent light showers. Overall the skiing will be poor off piste today and okay on piste. It will probably be more of a skiing day than snowboarding where the double edge grip can hold an advantage on piste. Some fun might be had by even crossing to the alternate side equipment wise? Another good down day activity is a visit to the world famous snow monkeys, about an hours drive away and on today...
- It is snowing steadily at Nozawa Onsen.

Visitor Reviews of Kagura
Daz from Japan writes:
Kagura is an excellent ski field. Combined with the slopes of Tashiro and Mitsumata, this resort is big. At the very top, some 1800 metres above sea level, the snow is some of the best around. There is accessible BC to suffice the more adventurous rider and plenty of pisted action for everyone else. This is one of the most easily accessed resorts from Tokyo and as a result can be crowded, especially in early and late season when everywhere else is closed, but if you utilise the Tashiro area you can find your powder stashes fairly easily. This area is also connected to the Naeba resort by a giant gondola, you have to pay extra to use the Naeba resort but when taken into account this gives one of the widest range of terrain available. If you are living in Tokyo it's cheap and easy to get to and has the powder and trees to make sure that you won't regret going
