What is the likelihood there will be snow on the ground when I am there? I will be arriving on Feb 18th. I want a really nice snowy experience since I live in Singapore where it’s hot all the time :)
My guess would be yes.....there is a lot of snow in japan at the moment!
Really good question! This was the first time I've been to Japan, but my understanding is that that area, as it's up in the mountains, is pretty cold - they had snow on the ground in early December (we were checking) and there are ski slopes near by (and technical further down the mountain). So I imagine you have a good shot! Did you ask the hotel? They are pretty helpful with stuff like that.
I live in Senegal, so I know how you feel - snow was GREAT!
