JAPAN - HOKKAIDO | The Adventure Project
After an awesome start to our Japan program in 2016, we are back with our 4th season in Hokkaido in 2019. Hokkaido is an amazing place. If you want to experience some of the best powder in the world, then this is the trip for you. Throw in a healthy dose of Japanese culture, then you have an epic trip in the making.

There are several resorts in close proximity to Otaru that get a ton of snow and are relatively unheard of. If you want deep, untouched powder, then this is the place to look. Our final zone is further north in middle of the Hokkaido powder triangle. Furano is one of the largest ski areas in Hokkaido, but it is still relatively quiet and gets plenty of snow which is even lighter than the snow found at the resorts near
