Konichiwa! The TC Crew heads to the land of pow, sushi, robots, more sushi, more pow, super-fast trains, sumo wrestling and the rising sun: Japan!
Our trip would have been doomed without the King of Japan: Tatsuya Tayagaki. A huge thank-you goes out to Tatsuya for helping us out.
Instead of two hours on a plane, we took a twenty-hour boat ride to the north island, Hokkaido.
A team meeting on the boat with the captain Rob Heule.
Tatsuya’s RV turned TC Van in Japan.
Cole Drexler noodle style.
Five pairs of used ski socks, one room.
From hot dogs to hot tea, vending machines rule Japan.
Hour 15 of 20 on the boat.
It would dump snow at least once a day, everyday.
The Japanese juggle master.
The circle rail!
We would like to give a huge Thank-You to Tatsuya, Akie and everyone at K2/Line Japan, Morris, Hiyuma, Guts and Abe-Shin. Along with all of the resorts who helped make our trip awesome!
