  1. Yeah, had a few beers with a coupla mates who were in Tenjindaira a few weeks ago and said it was ice bound in a lot of places. I remember Tenjindaira as a place that always went off, snow wise. Sounding like, with the exchange rate being shitty too, that it just may not be worth it this season. I am here to mainly get my J back to where I want it to be, and therefore am trying not to let wanting to snowboard dominate me (bad snow conditions/poor exchage rate may just make it easier to resist)
  2. Hi All, curious how it is in everyone's area (those living in/near the snow). Am hearing it is pretty poor this year from a few people here in Tokyo. Please share with me/us how you see it. Thanx.
  3. Ah, wish I'd found discountsnowboards.com.au earlier, hopefully I'll score just as well in J-Land!!!
  4. yeah, that's a good price. I will leave it till I get there. Saves me lugging it there and back. lol
  5. Nah, I don't necessarily need the latest model. I just don't have one these days, as I don't snowboard in OZ (does anyone after having lived in Japan before?). I gave away my old board when I came back. I know where to go in Tokyo (Ochamomizu etc) and will also check out rakuten with a friend when I arrive. Tnx
  6. Hi All, lookin to purchase a new board this season. What are the prices in Japan these days? I could get one here on sale for about $6-700 aussie. With the poor xchng right now, it may be best to get one here. Any thoughts?
  7. and another aussie as well!!! Ok, will pm u my number once I arrive and get one. Thanx.
  8. Hi All, I will be in Tokyo for a month, Jan 29 - Mar 01, and first couple of weeks I'm on holidays and am interested in catching some fresh stuff. Is there anyone on here looking for a travel buddy (no strings attached - lol)? From the 16th I'm working, but can do some weekends, perhaps. Hit me up in here if you're interested or know someone who might be.
  9. Ok, hired a car for 7000 yen. Heading to Nagano now. Need a lift, just call me. I'll most probably hit the mountain tomorrow too. Hakuba area.
  10. Can offer a few ppl a bed tomorrow night in return, perhaps. Not too sure of the rules with that. Can check if interested.
  11. Hi All, I'm staying at a friend's family lodge in Yamanashi. There is very little snow. Anyone passing through tomorrow morning or Fri to Nagano or other? It is a 10min drive from Kobuchizawa. Or, can someone suggest a nearby resort that has good snow. I don't mind hiring a car. You can get me on 09060641452(temp number so don't mind giving it here).
  12. Ok, so it's where you've put the underline. My GF is from Kagoshima, is that not far from there? She also surfs, so when we visit together, we're definitely checking that one out. Thanx again!!
  13. Bummer!!! Thanx for that. Will check it out when I get there, and if possible, great!
  14. Hi All, can anyone tell me if this is covered by the JR Rail Pass for foreigners? It's a goal of mine to take this train to Sapporo.
