Check out this sweet collaboration between Burton Snowboards and Japan Journals.
Three Burton snowboarders, Connor Harding, Roland Morley Brown and Nick Brown, travelled around the country for 7 weeks to bring you Japan Journals through blizzards and long days driving. They survived on canned coffee and a diet of the finest foods that Seico Mart has to offer, getting a taste of the landscape, culture and large amounts of powder in the process. Footage comes from Minakami, Nozawa onsen, Niseko and all the way up to Wakanai.
Did you ski or snowboard in Japan last season? Getting powder withdrawal symptoms yet?! What were your highlights? Tell us about your experiences.
When it dumps 30+ centimeters in 3 hours as it did on the afternoon of the 25 February it is time to down tools, get up on the mountain and enjoy the deep stuff. That’s exactly what Glen from 360niseko did.
It is incredible to be able to snowboard and ski at full speed under the lifts at night and experience bottomless turns. Check out the epic footage now!
Are you in Niseko at the moment or have you already been? How are you enjoying the awesome snow conditions this season?
Another fantastic start to a season in Niseko with a reported snow base of 175cm having accumulated on the mountain by December 1st, 2012.
With Niseko Hirafu opening as scheduled on 23rd November, here are a few highlights from the first week of the 2012/13 winter season. See you when you get here!
Are you in Niseko at the moment? How are you enjoying the early season snow?

Point and Shoot: Japan 2012 is a mash up of footage from Nimbus Independent that didn’t make the final cut while editing for their epic En Route Hokkaido film. Too many good ski shots and hilarious moments to let go to waste. Enjoy.
Japan’s Northern Alps are huge and filled with POWDER. Mikey Basich and Shin Biyajima lead the Flow team of Scotty Lago, Tim Humphreys, Scot Brown and Atsushi Ishikawa on a freeriding and heli-boarding mission.
