My advice, take some Japanese lessons now and get as much Japanese down as possible before you come, just asking directions and shopping skills will make your trip way more fun and less stressful.

It'll be amazing. Hows the snow down there at the moment?

Got any of your boards out on the snow yet?
I got return flights to Sapporo for AU$1002. Was too cheap to pass up. I may still jump on the boat and come down to Aomori to hit up Hakkoda but I will leave that to be decided when I am over there.
As for Japanese lessons the only way I could do it would be online, do you know of any good sites for this? I have a japanese translation app on my phone that I can use in emergency haha!

The "snow" here is looking good for aussie standards, I will probably be down there within a week or two testing out my sleeper cab I have been building that fits into the back of my ute.

As for the boards I just started looking at them again this week, ordered some materials for the sidewalls etc. I just have so much on its been hard finding time to even think about the boards lately but I will have some done to test out before I head to Japan thats for sure.

PS car danchi has been a bad influence on my sleeping patterns!

I just bought my K winter pass which gives me access to Sapporo Teine, Nakayama Touge, Rusutsu, Sahoro and Mt Racey for AU$957 which is $24 a day if I ride every day.
All I need now is car hire and Im done.
Total cost so far (flights and pass) AU$1959 for 6 weeks in heaven.
