What’s happening today

It’s almost 2012 and today we are working on ideas for things to deliver in 2012. I also have a New Years resolution, it’s not to make any New Years resolutions as I rarely stick to them anyway, do you?!

The New Year is the most important time of year for the Japanese, which means helping out with the preparation for tomorrow night and New Years day. My tasks mainly all revolve around food and drink… Get some wine from Niseko Cellars, then go to Maxvalu followed by a brief stop at Niseko Green Farm for vegetables.

Not as technical as yesterdays images but the iPhone in the right hands can capture magical moments. Here’s how Hirafu and Mt. Yotei looked this morning.
