Japan has a very strong street skating scene that generates a lot of street style riders, hence the abundance of butterers that come from Japan. Japan, in general, has a very strong snowboard culture, but their freestyle culture is almost predominantly street skaters who crossed over.
So while buttering might not be the same as street skating, it seems thats just what street skaters gravitate towards when they cross over. That and shooting street parts.

|jdang307||Is it blasphemous for me to say I find most snowboard videos boring? The last big movie before art of flight I fell asleep a few minutes in. I think it all gets repetitive no matter what|

I love watching flatland trick videos! It's amazing what these guys can do. Here's another one from "Masters of ground" for old time's sake.

Ground work is really popular in Japan because the snowboarding scene is much more closely tied to the street skating scene. Here, vert freestyle across 3 disciplines (BMX, skate, Inline skating) has been the heavy emphasis for years before freestyle snowboarding really kind of took off and went full on mainstream in the late 90's. Street comps where never given the same level of precedence or attention. So when snowboarding did catch on, naturally it went the same way (vert) eventually maturing the slopestyle scene too.
The result street snowboarding and consequently, buttering, isn't nearly as popular. If you ask me, the Japanese area bit too obssessed with ground work. I have a friend who lived in Japan and became obssessed with their culture - a real otaku or whatever they call themselves - and I constantly am forced to watch the newest buttering edit. I'm also stuck buttering the greens half the day, too. Boring.

|Donutz||What bugs me about these types of videos is the excessive cutting. You pretty much never get to actually see anyone actually do an actual trick. Four or five cuts in a single MFM butter, you kind of wonder how many takes that took.|

Too... much... butter...
I didn't think it was possible during a video about snowboarding but I got bored also...
