Tokyo, well there is a lot to be said about Tokyo. On Sunday afternoon we visited the Yoyogi Garden in the center of Tokyo. The garden is extraordinarily quiet and peaceful despite being situated smack bang in the middle of the world's largest city. At the entrance however, we found the a rockabilly shin dig in full swing.
We opened our powder account today at a small resort, Niseko-Moiwa. Lastnight brought a full 60cms of blower pow, but it was blown around by equally copious amounts of wind. The resort has 2 small lifts, one of which was closed. We paid our 350yen for a one lift and went and toured the steeped pitch we could find. We had the place to ourselves while people poled across the flats below. Backcountry quite literally in country. But a picture tells a thousand words and a short video a few more.
I dared to venture into the supermarket today. In Tokyo we either ate at the Convenience store—where a lot of goodies can be found—or in restaurants. So finally a week later I made it into one of the more interesting and revealing destinations in any foreign country.
