LF Snowboarding Friend in Japan

Hello all,

This is going to sound weird and might not even be the right place for it, but I was wondering if anyone here would be willing to allow me to tag along while boarding in Japan (not staying with you though).

Here's the situation:
My S.O. and I are going to Japan and she doesn't care for snow sports. I want to board somewhere...doesn't matter where, just some place awesome, but neither of us feel comfortable with me boarding alone on a foreign mountain in a foreign country (I'm American).

So if anyone would be willing to let me board with them, that'd be great. I'm mostly freeride and I'm probably an intermediate boarder. I'm not really sure what else I can do besides asking here, but if anyone has any other ideas, let me know. Thanks!

Mods - if this isn't appropriate feel free to close/delete.

Where are you going to be? Japan is a big place.

Riding solo in japan is perfectly safe btw.

I don't have a place planned just yet, I figured anywhere I could find someone to tag along with. And while it might be safe, she'd feel a lot better if I rode with others. I'm a little concerned since I don't speak Japanese and would be on an unfamiliar mountain.

When are you thinking of going? I'm an American currently living in Japan. My Japanese is pretty meh, but it's enough to get stuff done. I'm going home for Christmas, but will be back on Jan 5.

But also what the previous poster said: where are you planning on going?

So let me know where and when, and I'll see if I can't join you and bring some other people as well.

If you cant find someone out of the 2 posters above, perhaps a tour meant for foreigners might be suitable:
