  1. Take a look at the map of the place and try to work out where there's some flat. The one I can remember is getting from the 'left side' of the mountain over to Utopia (?). Even on skis and getting some speed up, there was a bit of walking involved. Sorry that isn't more descriptive!
  2. I like putting petals in my bath too. And lemons.
  3. Yeah that's why I'm asking. Interested to know if there's any reason other than just want a new one. Which is fine of course!
  4. Can I ask - did you consider a good condition second hand car? They seem to be really good deals here, and lots of them very fine condition.
  5. There's no telling is there. Remember off season when there was a vote on the best time to be in Japan. Didn't late January/early February win?
  6. They shold bottle that and sell that as air freshner. Congrats on the new purchase. What colour did you get - a lovely pea green or dirty brown? (Some of the choices people make!!! Are the awful ones just cheaper or something?!)
  7. As long as the Snow Gods hold back on their gambaru, so will I!
  8. They got the sushi, slow motion Tokyo and most other Japan cliches in there, but I didn't notice a Shinkansen and Fuji. Which was quite disappointing!
  9. I'm on the side of people who think that manners are the same anywhere.
  10. Brilliant, muika. Just proved how amazing the views are from up there. Pity it's pretty much a rubbish skijo!
  11. For extremely easy to get to views, the ones from Yuzawa Kogen and Gala Yuzawa are pretty great I think as shown here by muika. http://www.snowjapanforums.com/index.php/topic/23549-yuzawa-kogen-yuzawa-niigata-7th-january-2014-pm/ http://www.snowjapanforums.com/index.php/topic/23490-gala-yuzawa-yuzawa-niigata-25th-december-2013/ Oh, and Mt Granview too! http://www.snowjapanforums.com/index.php/topic/23503-mt-granview-minamiuonuma-niigata-29th-december-2013/
  12. There can only be one answer to that. Sadistic arseholes.
  13. ANA have withdrawn their add after calls of "racism" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCjxzpSrFP4
  14. ...apparently. But talking to rescue people by phone. Don't know where they are. Looks like mad snow up there on the news now.
  15. It may well be an old custom but I do not think it is common place. I would guess that it also will have less relevance as the years go on as well. In my many years in Japan, I have never seen it or been offered. Thankfully. Obviously I am also in need of an education.
