After a couple of trips to Tohoku for the last few years it’s time for a return to the true north. Last coupla days around Otaru. yesterday (as a first day warm up) had a poke around Tengu great snow, cruisy untracked trees only a coupla westerners. Real Japanese feel. Today a tour near Otaru ok views and boot deep light stuff. A few Swedes up here and lots of locals probably about 20 +. Easy touring see photos above. Tomorrow somewhere else.
