We had to abort todays snow mission due to a very heavy-duty weather system sweeping through – drove up the hill in a total white-out, only to find the Hakkouda ropeway was closed due to high wind. So we went to the fantastic Sannai-Maruyama site. Apparently, they were 1/2 way through building a baseball stadium on this site when they discovered the remains of a village from the Jomon period, so they stopped costruction & built a museum instead! Pretty cool… in Aus, they`d have bulldozed the lot!

Heres we are all dressed up in Jomon clothes inside the museum, in front of a replica hut
