Winter has come very early this year.
On November 22, it snowed in downtown Matsumoto for the first time this year.
On November 23, a record of 60cm of snow in November fell in the northern part of Nagano Prefecture.
We can see beautiful snow on the top of the Japan Alps from Matsumoto.
Some ski resorts in Hakuba have already opened earlier than usual this year. We expect to enjoy enough snow for winter sports like skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing this season.
