The first snowcap of the season is seen on Mount Daisen, the highest peak in the Chugoku region at 1,729 meters, in the town of Daisen, Tottori Prefecture, on Oct. 31, 2017. The date of this season's first snowcap in the area is almost the same as an average year, Nov. 1, and is two days earlier than last year. At around 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 31, local government officials observed that the top of the mountain was covered with snow down to an altitude of around 1,600 meters. The contrast between snow and the red autumn leaves on Mount Daisen can be enjoyed until early November. (Mainichi)
