Shredders,

I'm considering a Japan trip this spring. I'm hoping to glean information here about where in Japan to go.

What I'm looking for:

1. Snow: The deepest snow in Japan - north island, I assume but? And then, which airport to fly into?

2. Terrain: Uncrowded. Open trees, glades, or above treeline are fine.

3. Hot springs.

4. Lodging: Simple, clean, unfancy, on the inexpensive side, and close to, or within public transport from, the uptrack(s), food and hot springs. Prefer something in a smaller than larger town.

5. Transportation: Is it generally necessary to rent a car or van? Do people rent and shred from RVs in Japan as in AK?

Any help from those who know (Firstlight, Bobgnarly?) would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Taylor

Hokkaido- 20cm-40cm most days, not many clear days in dec/jan/feb, not much steep terrain
Honshu- bigger dumps but less often though totals are pretty much the same, more clear days, not as cold, steeper terrain, more variety.
