MAPS IN THE NEWS:
In the mountains northwest of Tokyo, the town of Fujiwara (marked with a blue dot on this map) set a record earlier this month: nearly 6' of snow in 48 hours. Fujiwara received a total of 7.1' of snow in less than three days, stranding at least 1000 vehicles in a 10-mile backup. The area around Fujiwara is known for its ski resorts and hot springs. www.snowjapan.com/UploadedFiles/MapImages/Resort/Gunma-Ski-Resort-Minakami-Kogen-Fujiwara.png
