Last weekend was a three-day weekend in Japan; we had a substitute day off for National Foundation Day (建国記念の日), which fell on a Sunday. Despite being a few hours away by train, my friend Nikki and I decided to go for a day of skiing in Tanigawadake, Gunma Prefecture!
This shot makes it look like it was a pleasant, sunny day. This was taken during the about 10 minutes of actual sun we saw that day. It was mostly blizzard-y and freezing, although it was still a lot of fun. We filled up on 7-11 coffee and headed off early in the morning!
