English language school in the heart of the Japanese Alps, and English language learners sharing their experiences online. Teachers post regular items about teaching, learning tools, events in the school, their day to day experiences living & working in a foreign country. Students post on whatever takes their fancy - book reports, festivals in home towns, postcards from business trips etc. A little Brit of England in the guts of Japan!
The recent weather in Matsumoto is very
changeable. Sometimes it was freezing and snowy, and sometimes it was really
warm. Even if it snowed, the snow would start to melt soon after. Actually, it
snowed in the night on Wednesday 23rd but the next day became sunny
And also there is a big difference in
temperature between the day and night. This might be bad for our health, so I
must be cautious of my family’s shape and me.

Sometimes there’s a breeze and there are gale-force
winds too. There is a proverb, “March winds and April showers bring forth May
flowers.” I remember this proverb during this season and I feel that spring is
just around the corner these days.
I like this season because I can sense the
beginning of spring and I’m excited somehow. On the other hand, I dislike it
because I suffer from hay fever. A running nose and itchy eyes are terrible for
me. I wish I wouldn’t have these symptoms!
Anyway, I would like to enjoy this weather to go somewhere
with my family.
