We had a few days off of work because of the Golden Week holidays. So, Yuuzo suggested that we go to one of the mountains near Lake Biwa named "Biwako Valley" which is really a winter ski slope on the top of the mountain (Confused yet?) and a big playground the rest of the year. Hiroshi, Nathan, and Hannah were about to come so we had a nice little group.
