Japan sounds excellent., i think i shall be heading there this season. Shiga kogen is the biggest resort with the most runs and lifts but does it have good powder runs like the others advertise? Also, back to the night life.. The punters want to know if the local ladies are friendly... like do they put out?

I agree, Thailand might be better option for you.

aaaahhhh...Japan...the first place I've ever stepped on a snowboard!...Was stationed at Iwakuni (on mainland JP) for a year...not idea what resort I was at but it was 30 min from Iwakuni....I never had an issue w/ talking to ppl there...JP requires at least 1 yr English to be tought in school so alot of ppl there can speak some English....Japanese people have a very quiet culture so most try to avoid anyone non Japanese anyways....

I need to take a trip back there....loved it!

P.S. Wouldn't suggest eating anything at any of the resorts out there....3 of us came down w/ food poisioning after eating the ckn at the cafeteria there....
