Yes, it snows in Japan. On the west coast of Japan, storms come marching in from Korea and the Sea of Japan carrying plenty of cold air and moisture and dump snow all over the west coast. Bad for surfing but great for skiing and snowboarding, and "snowboogieboarding."

I went out to take a leisurely stroll down the street, it turned into a slow march through a blizzard.

10 minutes later, the weather cleared for a bit and I made to a shrine in the neighborhood. Nobody else was around at the time, so I had a some time to myself before my hands started to go numb and I hiked back to the house.

  1. Boogie board snow surfing reminds me of leaf boarding down the Saddle Mtn hillside when we were gremmies...

    Looks like a blast!
