I can't wrap my head around those pictures. How do they plow it in such a way as to create those perfect walls?
It's the Japanese man. That's how they do everything. Their shit always looks neat and tidy (teenage Japanese girl fashion not withstanding).

I'm surprised they don't have an army robots crawling all over these walls carving dioramas for travelers to look at.

Speaking of girls No Offense. But for work I have to go trough tons of Japanese porn manga. Typically with underage looking girls and always violence. Who reads them must have a pretty sick idea of sex and sexuality. Bt now back to the wall of pow.

1998-1999 Mt BAKER breaks WORLD SNOWFALL RECORD

1140"/95 Feet/2896 cm

avg snowfall 647"

That year was sick, everyday was knee deep powder. If you ever make up to BAKER, pay attention to the white painted lines around some of the riblets, BAKER mngr Duncan and a couple ski patrollers went around and painted stripes to show the depth of the snow that record year. Chair 6 at one point you were about 8 feet below the surface, and during a avg season the white stripe is about 20-25 feet higher then the snow surface.

Japan rules. If you really love powder snow you just have to get there at least once in your lifetime.
And yes there is a lot to learn from the japanese, respect for others is probably one of the biggest.

It is typical to have a crowd of guys standing around in every 7-11 style store reading those comic books.
FWIW what looks like an under age girl to us could be a 25 year old girl in japan, they look young and live long

I live there. It's at tateyama in Toyama prefecture.
I traveled to Toyama from Hamamatsu via train. Japan's interior is beautiful. I had business at the Nachi factory.

Incidentally, I found the people in that part of Japan were less accustomed to American Gaijin. At 6'8" I was used to being stared at but in Toyama I felt like a one man freak show.
