The japow gods have once again returned to Niseko in full force this season. Since I was busy adulting, I only managed a week there in Feb 2018, but luckily there was still plenty of pow to be had. Loving it even more this season with the car which allowed us to avoid the great unwashed.
If hairpin turns and sexy wheels are your idea of fun, this self-drive tour is one of the best you can do when visiting Tokyo. Highly recommended for not-boring people.
As the 2016/2017 season draws to a close I think we can safely conclude that it was one of the worst seasons ever for Niseko with less than 8m of cumulative snowfall. Was lucky enough to squeeze out 3 pow days out of my week there in Feb 2017.
