Japan is off to a very slow start, but rest assured – snow is coming!

If you’re traveling to Japan’s main island this Christmas, get your snow dancing shoes on and start busting out your best moves! That’s the message from snow-industry managers all over Honshu, who are presently sweating on the snow Gods to deliver a season starting dump!

A quick review of the long term snow-fall statistics, compiled over the last 6 years, confirms this year’s snow falls are way below average.
