First part of this trip report from Hakuba Goryu & Hakuba 47 here:

http://www.snowjapan...-february-2012/

For the afternoon, I moved over to Happo-one.

Words will just spoil it, so here's photos I took there. Look out for really tiny people in some of them. ;)

I'll post some general thoughts tomorrow.

Choose a bunch of those, make them into postcards and I'd buy them!

Top work this season, muika. Otsukaresama.

Those views are one of the reasons I love Hakuba so much. (Un)fortunately, I've only had one bluebird day there this year. Wicked pics dude!
