Wow wow wow wow wow! number one favorite pic set EVER!!! :) What an amazing looking place! Its snowporn as far as the eye can see. And yes, id hit the shit out of it to all you thinking im a eunuch. An appropriate picture set to bling out the little muika or whatever its name is.

The photos of the trails don't have anyone in them, was this just luck or was the place deserted?

I'm so unbelievably jealous I've been staring at Tanigawa and Hotaka the last view days contemplating faking a flu to get my self up there! I might have even climbed Tanigawa in the morning and boarded in the afternoon. Beautiful pics! every time I go to Tanigawa I send your links to my family to show them how beautiful it is. Thank you!!!!

Tenjin doesn't even have that many people on weekends let alone weekdays. You can also print a coupon of their website for 3,000 yen full day pass! The only negative about Tenjin is the previously mentioned notoriously slow rope way, but I think the positives outweigh the negatives. First skijo I ever went to in Japan and still one of my favorites

Beautiful.

 

Are most of the hikers just there to hike, or are they skiing/boarding? Don't see too many ski/board tracks coming down from that seemingly well-hiked ridge. Or do they come down somewhere not visible?

Probably 98% of the people who climb the mountain are doing just that. They may come back to the skijo and board/ski after that, but most are there to climb the mountain. I have seen a couple of lines coming off the peak on the left in the first pic from this thread, but I would be scared to try it. The av danger is probably low, but if it went I don't anything would save you.

Great pics! It didn't look like that when I was there a few weeks ago - blowing a gale and couldn't see anything!! Shame cos I really wanted to try some of those runs through the trees.....

Great photos, and glad to hear everything was okay. Don't risk your life big man, not even for a pro lens!

 

It looks like you took all three, so that's quite some gear to be carrying and juggling around with cases and caps and ski poles and things.

Thanks folks.

It's difficult to take bad pictures up there, camera eats it up!

Yes I'll take the 12-24, 24-70 and 70-200 to places like Tenjin. Better than going and regretting not having them.

The lens was covered in snow when I recovered it. It seems to be ok. I'll have to check out out. Good job they are built sturdy!

It is a beautiful place.

 

If you are not into the hiking thing, or photography, it's hardly worth going though.

 

BTW, were any of those hikers naked muika?
