All transport worked well and we have now spent our first day in Furano. Everything seems very familiar and we are really relaxed and comfortable here. We did our usual supermarket adventure last night and got lots of fresh food and cheap grog. I have finally figured out the Japanese food packaging … just buy stuff with “Premium” written on the package and you can’t go wrong. Marketing companies in OZ need to get onto that idea.
We had a great day on the mountain today. Hardly anyone here. The weather was mostly fine but very cold and the slopes were groomed immaculately as usual. Just perfect for getting our ski legs tuned up for the forecast powder dump. As I am typing this it has started snowing very heavily outside … big fat fluffy flakes.
