Japan Journals episode 1

Japan Journals is a snowboarding web series based out of the fluffy depths of Japan's snow covered wilderness.

In Episode 1 the boys have Gondola access to some jaw-dropping fun terrain and they meet up with Japanese pro rider Taka Nakai and get him to show us why he loves riding his homeland so much. Then venture up to Nakayama Pass and explore some good jump spots with some of the best powder earth has to offer.

This is the first of the 4 Japan Journals web episodes. Stay posted throughout the season to see what drags the world’s best snowboarders to this incredible part of the world.
