DaKine presents “Lighter Japan”

From Dakine Europe via Vimeo:

This past winter Elias Elhardt and Jason Robinson traveled to Japan in search of infamous pillows in less explored zones. They found the powder they were looking for and so much more. The lightness of the snow matched the kindness of the people, the softness of their music and the smoothness of their ways.

Unlike most visitors who travel to the North Island, our crew opted to stay on the main island. Hakuba was the destination chosen for their Nippon experience. A few hours drive from Tokyo, the contrast between the most advanced and populated city in the world and the outstanding natural beauty and peacefulness of the Japanese Alps had them traveling in both space and time.

Jason and Elias were joined by Masaki and Sho, an Alpine-board rider, creating this multi-cultural group that proves that passion for snowboarding combines any nation. This is the ultimate warm up for the upcoming season.
