Just in case you weren’t sick of seeing snow yet, we’ve come up with a few reasons why snow is, like, the best thing ever. There aren’t actually any cons, so apologies for the misleading title.
- SNOWSPORTS! Not for everyone, which is why rental is a handy thing. As you drag your bruised behind back to the car and decide you never want to slide down a mountain again, you can take comfort in the knowledge that you don’t have to.
- BLIZZARDS! There’s nothing more thrilling than not knowing where your road might take you. As long as it’s not into the back of a kei truck.
- GOALS! More time inside means more time to work on those hobbies. How about breaking the record for longest amount of uninterrupted time spent under a kotatsu?
- PRETTY LIGHTS! So magical. Hirosaki’s snow lantern festival is pretty good. Due to warmer-than-average temperatures last year, the festival took on something of a House of Wax vibe.
Before you know it, the snow is gone and the fun is over for another year.
