This is an event I’ve been holding every year I’ve been in Japan since 2006. Sometimes lots of people come, sometimes it’s just me.

I’d like to invite anyone who loves snow to this event.

It’s pretty simple. We meet at the Iwatake gondola parking and hike up.

At the top, we hold the ceremony. We drink a little sake, say thank you to last winter, pray for a good one this season, and make a personal promise to do something to prevent Global Heating. Whatever that something is is up to you. But it’s always nice to do this with other like-minded people.

Then we have a bite to eat and head down.

Meet some other winter enthusiasts, get your legs ready for the season, and do something to keep the winters coming!

Hope to see you there!
