    Buying gear in Japan

    Hi Im planning of snowboarding in Myoko for 8 weeks next winter . How are the prices of snowboarding gear in Japan compared to the us ? where do you recommend buying gear in Tokyo or Myoko ?
  2. Not a lot of action pics as I was videoing mainly but these pics will give an idea of the extent and layout for those who have not been yet. Click on pics to enlarge.
  3. OK, I have cruised through previous threads and started to gather details on who's going where for the 11/12 season. I figure it would be easier for folks to hook up with other SJ'ers (if they want to) if the details were all in one place. Thank you to previous thread starters and to a poster on another forum whose layout I have shamelessly copied (thanks Smitty) This list is just the start so please feel free to add names, dates, edit or change your details by posting on this thread and I will keep it updated regularly.
