New guy from Japan

Hi im Steve and im stationed oversees here in Japan enlisted in the United States Navy. Originally from South Florida so obviously i didnt do a lot of snowboarding before i came here to Japan. My only previous experience was some East Coast icey riding but i have been surfing and longboarding since as long as i can remember. Ive been shredding here in Japan since last season as much as i could and i love it, tons of fresh powder and always a great time. Usually hit up Shiga Kogan and Kagura for anyone who knows the Japan mainland area. If anyone else knows some other spots around this area or wants to board let me know

Welcome to the forum Shred!
I am also from SouthFLA... Miami to be exact. Grew up in Plantation, up in Broward.
Sorry I can't help you with Japan boarding spots.
Good luck and thanks for your service!

Nice to meet you Steve.

So where abouts are you in Honshu?

I'm up in Sapporo and we've been open since Nov 11. But it didn't really start snowing properly until the last week of Nov and now we're getting weekly dumps. Let us know if you're up in Hokkaido, and hit me up for a ride!

Oh, and by the way you should check out snowjapan.com. Not as much general snowboard stuff as here, but there's a lot of riders from Honshu on there.
