Like your van ETM, looks nice. I agree with the paprework stuff when purchasing one. I had a Camry and a Nissan van back when i was stationed at yokosuka in 89-94 and you had to pay road taxes and every year to renew your tabs you have to get inspected at their DOT what a pain to get there. The Japanese are the coolest people we've met and they always try to help you. Never felt threatened there at all. Have fun shredding!

Sorry for lack of updates.

We have only had one decent dump in the 10 days we have been in Nozawa which is a major drought compared to what I am used to in Hokkaido. Having said that it was a decent dump of 50cm+

I met up with dreampow at Myoko and we hiked to the peak with snowshoes and got a really nice ride down. We could also see fujisan which was awesome, it's such an iconic backdrop.
The ride down was awesome too!

Starting point.

Pick your line


The nasty terrain trap we found ourselves in at the bottom. Stability was great but we got in and out of here as fast as possible.
