Owen sporting his crusty powder demon beard

Owen’s blog – sorry, its now invite only – very exclusive ;) – covers my week in Niseko quite nicely, but I will add a few observations & pics.

After a mad, hung-over, last-minute dash to Osaka airport, I was seriously relieved to spend the day mostly sleeping on the plane/bus to Niseko.

I stayed at a lovely little Japanese lodge near the bunny area, & was lucky enough to score my own room (with a view). The pad had free wifi, which was incredibly handy for skype phone calls, weather reports, etc.
