    I have a feeling the road cams are anywhere between Nagano and the sea of Japan past Otari.

    Because Donza is better at gloating than doing the actual work, here's where each of the cameras are:

    No webcam her, but looking at the Christmas decoration in Sapporo - minus 20 c in central Hokkaido and soft snow in Zao.

    Lots of ice on the streets on Hokkaido and pedestrians have trouble walking.

    Strong winds further south.

    Yes, winter has come to Japan - and I will not be there! :headbang:

    Yes, I was looking at Fuji san on Thursday morning, noting that the snow was much further down the mountain than it was two days before.

    This is on route 148 next to Otari. Good indicator for the northerly blowing in.

    小谷村外沢 Sotozawa Nakatsuchi
    This is about half way between Otari & Cortina on route 148

    Yes the bridge is on route 433.

    This image is readily available - can someone locate it on a google earth map for us and give a lat/long reference, please? The cams around Shiga are hard to follow (at least the ones I have found are not located with any (english) references that make sense. GPS locations would be much appreciated! :love:
