Will Jackways snowboarding in Japan

Snowboarding in Japan should be on the bucket list of everyone to strap into a snowboard. Some of the most incredible backcountry riding in the world is located in the northernmost island of Hokkaido, and much of it is accessible off the side of the road. New Zealand native Will Jackways spent two months exploring the deepest depths of the Samurai State and the footage has one click away from a round-trip ticket. Snowboarding in Japan looks unreal.

Two months wandering around the backcountry of Niseko in Hokkaido, Japan with Will Jackways for his Monster Energy edit.

We shared our time with a really amazing group of people from other riders such as Bode Merrill, Markus Keller, Yuta Kiyohara and more as well as other friends and film crews.

After all was said and done we felt that we had still had more of a story to tell, exploring more of the lifestyle, riding and Will’s opinions from the most recent of his ten trips to Japan.

A huge thanks to everyone who helped make the journey possible.
