Japan - Zen of Pow
Japan - Zen of Pow

Japan sits in our minds with images of sushi, samurais, zen, Toyotas and Sony. Now deep, powder skiing joins the list! Pacific storms mixed with Siberian cold makes deep, cold smoke a daily reality for the Land of the Rising Sun. We make our way to Hokkaido to the ski region of Niseko and Furano for 6 days of exploration and skiing the many ski areas, enjoying as many fresh track we can find! We have explored Hokkaido and agree Niseko and Furano need a visit, the pow is too deep to ignore.
