|hender214||Cheers theres some awesome replies on this thread. I really want to go to Japan ive had a fascination with the place for as long as I can remember after my dad worked out there for a few months. The only issue is we will only be doing 10 days and I think I need more time for japan I would want to do more than just board.|

Now even though I really enjoyed the US - it really surprised me - most of my favourite memories are from Eastern Europe. We hiked up a massive mountain range to the only Bosnian Village to survive the Balkan war and were just randomly taken in by a little family, fed and watered and given a bed for the night just because it was freezing outside.
I met a group of guys in Turkey who were playing soccer on the beach in this little village called Adrasan and they asked me to play. When they found out where I was from they asked my to teach them how to play Rugby because they all dreamed of going to the Manilla 7's to play Rugby. So I stayed an extra couple of days there and we played rugby on the beach, drank beer and ate all the food their wives/girlfriends kept bringing down from home.
We went to a grand sumo wrestling tournament in Tokyo and managed to sit right next to this super rich dude who started up some sort of illegal gambling ring right next to us. So he adopted me and my mate Allen as his new best friends, got us hammered on expensive whiskey, Saké and fed us food all day long while we sat there collecting his winnings.
Those sort of experiences are the ones I'll dine on forever. For me, the majority of them occur when I'm slightly outside my comfort zone, where I don't speak the language and the culture is completely different to my norm.
So yeah, travel - it's eye opening. Money's no good to you when you're dead.

if ur gonna travel, travel, you got the passports and money...do it up....
Japan, expand you and your friends' cultural sphere. Plan on not pandering to any picky eaters and go eat local while u are there.
For most of us Japan is harder to get to, and as you can see from the thread, most will agree that in a coinflip, Japan wins every time.
Fuck going somewhere they speak english and eat more of the brown food you would have eaten if you went to the pub after the snowdome.
No offense whatsoever to Canadians but if you are gonna spend money to travel from England, Canada is like England with the badass sea to shining sea landscapes of north america including some rad mountains and all....
i could go on and on .....
this has nothing to do with if Baldface is badass or AK heli drops are cool, those are retarded dickswinging internet comparisons.
I live in denver and would move up to bc/vancouver area in a heartbeat, fwiw, or if working by a Canadian rockies spot...that too....but if Japan entered the equation...it would stand alone....
tldr: everyone, I mean EVERYONE, wants to go shred the bottomless stuff in Japan. Period.
Plus everything else about the place is awesome barring natural/nuclear disaster sigh.

|ETM||Japan has a short aggressive snowfall period, jan and feb. If you go in jan or feb you will get epic snow, anything after feb is the toss of a coin.|

Don't mean to be negative, just thinking worst case scenario. Because I was unlucky enough to land in to Japan a week after rain had washed away most of the snow and turned the rest to crud and mush.

Revelstoke or Nelson area in Central/Eastern BC....
Japan is on my bucket list but so where the above, I went to them and they were great places. We were there in April, March would have been better.
