I visited Zao, Sagae and Mogami river this weekend with wife, daughter and my mother.
We enjoyed 樹氷 "Silver frost" at the Mt.Zao.
The temp was minus 13 deg C. So we could not stand outside so long time.
Enjoyed beautiful scenery from the gondola.
The main purpose of this trip was to spend peaceful time with family but I could not forget about the radio.
I took elecraft K1 and Fishingrod and some wires for antenna.
Here is the antenna set up at the balconi of the hotel in Sagae-city.
Hot spa at the hotel in Sagae was superb.
The outdoor spa was especially nice with white snow around the hot spa.
We also enjoyed river crousing at Mogami river.
Other photos are summarized here.
I also summarized photos of our trip to Okutadami last October here
