Earlier this year I found myself spending a few weeks at a Japanese ski resort, that I had never visited before. That’s actually quite rare for me, considering I spent three years working on a guidebook about skiing and snowboarding in Japan (Snow-search Japan). My visit to Aomori Spring was initially more of a time-filler[…]
The 2017 Northern Hemi winter was my tenth year visiting Japan. With the preceding seven or eight years holding longer stints for me, I was content to shorten this year’s trip to just six weeks; more work for 360nz back home in Wanaka, a tad more summer (when it finally showed up), and plenty of time riding dirt instead of snow.
