Remarks: 50+ km visiblity! 2 hours after, heavy snow fall hits and visibility down to 1500. Exactly what the Japan weather report has said, I would say they have the more accurate forecast in the world.
Remarks: Taken from the observation deck at the airport, this spot has many similarites with Innsbruck even the layout of the deck. Minus the huge mountain backdrop and replaced with some nice snow capped hills and trees.
