Winter in Aizu is finally coming to an end!
In the Aizu area winter tends to drag on longer than in other areas of Japan at the same latitude but nearer the Pacific Ocean. During the month of March, although we have had some fine spring weather and a lot of snow has melted, there have also been several days and nights with biting cold winter winds and flurries of snow. As winter comes to an end, there is no more back-breaking snow clearing to do and I seem to have more time for such activities as writing this blog. So watch out for more blog entries from me from now on.
