On my revent trip to Nozawa, I used the GoPro to get a video of the trip down on the Gondola. The scenery over the valley was really beautiful.
Of particular interest to be was the variation in climate. The mountains on the left side of the shot have just about no snow on them whereas the ones on the right are quite snowy.
The video is 15 minutes but can be set to double speed and should be viewed at 720px if possible.
