Just coming to the end of an amazing week skiing in Niseko. Skiing has been wonderful although we’ve had unusually spring like weather so will have to come back another time to experience the famous Japanese powder.

One of my favourite things has been to go to the Onsen every day- I’ve found my muscles have recovered more quickly from workouts and long days skiing.

Diet’s taken a bit of a hit but having never been to Japan, I’ve not wanted to resis trying everything!
It’s a big fat yes to ramen noodles, sushi, gyoza and moshi! And a resounding NO to smelly natto beans!

Onto HK this evening and looking forward to catching up with the Kenzai gang there!

Hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend!

Onsen after a day on the mountain is one of Japan’s greatest contributions to society, along with the washlet toilet (with heated seat, air dry, sound effects and self flush and seat raise sensors). My favorite thing is having a BEER in said onsen.
Sucks you missed the JAPOW but cool that you had fun and great food. Guessing you meant MOCHI and not answering the phone.

    It sounds like it was a nice vacation, Jess! I heard from Elissa we may have a surprise guest on our dragon boat on Tuesday. Enjoy your stay in Hong Kong!

        Sounds like the best time Jess! And dang that Ramen looks 👌🏿👌🏿
        I remember after my first onsen experience I said I never wanted to bathe any other way. Of course that had to change when I left Japan 😭

            It all sounds amazing! The best vacations are the ones where there’s lots of activity during the day and good food and drink in the evening. The ramen looks fantastic!

                Hahahahaha ahhhhhh great timing! I bet we did pass each other on the slopes!
                And how good are Onsen's! I did the same thing too, sunk into one at the end of each day.
                Niseko is really something else right (and the food there!)
                So glad you enjoyed it too
