This Season's Ski Conditions

Already this season, 94% of the 450 ski resorts across Japan are open. Not only is this higher than the percentage of open resorts at the same time last year, but 67% of slopes are open compared to last year's 11%.

The last two years have seen record low levels of snowfall. However, places like Niigata Prefecture's Joetsu City Takada Resort and Toyama City have already had as much snow as they had all last season (The 3 months from December to February). Additionally, the cold winter winds have led to increased snowfall and accumulation on the mountains along the Japan Sea.

New Year's Greetings

Happy New Year! The effects of COVID-19 still linger as people continue to wonder when restrictions will be lifted and the world will return to normal. Last March while in Australia for work, I found myself in a tough situation as my trips to 3 Malaysian cities were suddenly canceled and flights back home to Japan began being canceled one after another. Soon after that, COVID was classified as a pandemic and countries around the world began taking preventative action. Those actions still effect as there is now light on the horizon with news of a vaccine.

Unable to take part in my normal seasonal traditions, I tried challenge myself with new experiences. I started and am continuing living a vegan lifestyle, and with that my cooking repertoire and cooking utensils have considerably increased. I also started taking vitamins to supplement my diet and have become more focused on improving my health. This includes adding time for stretching and walking to cover a lack of exercise.

However, the sudden drop in meeting people and sharing conversation was difficult and I recently began volunteering support for local schools. Learning about the kids and getting introduced to a whole new world of opportunities has brought a new sense of satisfaction to my life.
I hope to apply these new experiences to my work, and provide families visiting Japan not only a travel experience but a learning experience as well.

Here is looking forward to a brighter future across the globe!
