Taka sent us a few pictures of himself at Marunuma Kogen.  Marunuma Kogen is located in Gunma. This resort is famous for its long season, they are open for 190 days throught the year, which is more than half a year.  They have powerful fast gondolas (2.5 km ride) to take you to the top only in 10 minutes.  There are both beginner and intermediate runs from the top, which means that you can enjoy the ride in the gondola with great views no matter what level you are.  The snow depth is 230 cm.
