Our first visit of the year. The sun is hazy, but you can see the snowy mountains in the distance.
T’s nephew drives up for the day with his wife and extremely cute 1-year-old daughter. We have fun but don’t get much work done.
The next morning T wakes me with the news that it’s snowing, quite hard. The radio is talking about major snow, and those tyre chains are such a pain to put on that we gulp down breakfast, pack and get out of there before we get snowed in. Short weekend.
Min. temp. -4°C max. 8°C
It’s hazier than last week – brown hills are visible, but no white mountains. Leaving Nagoya it’s not too cold, but the house is definitely well chilled when we open the doors.
The deer-trapping ojisan drops in and we show him our Goto photos over a cup of tea.
Patches of snow on the ground turn crisp by late afternoon.
Tofu chiggae for dinner – easy but good.
Outside, everything is waiting for the spring. I need to do some pruning though.
Min. temp. -6°C max. 8°C
There’s too much snow again so we stay in Nagoya. On Monday we take the Tarumi line again and enjoy the snow from the train window.
