Japan has long been a bastion of snowboarding because of its welcoming culture and constant accumulation in the mountains. Last winter was nothing short of exceptional, as the snow fell non-stop on the North Island and in this edit, Kazuhiro Kokubo, one of Japan’s most celebrated sons, takes the adidas snowboarding team through his home country to show them exactly why Japan should be on the top of any die hard snowboarder’s bucket list. Alongside Eric Jackson, Forest Bailey, Helen Schettini, Jake Blauvelt, Keegan Valaika and Louif Paradis, the crew submerges themselves and sessions the streets for eight minutes straight to show you exactly what Japan has to offer any snowboarder smart enough to visit.
