From the makers of the acclaimed World Snowboard Guide comes the first in a new series of in-depth guides; Snow-search Japan.
Combining independent and authoritative reviews on the major resorts, with a detailed travel and cultural guide to Japan, Snow-search Japan will be a unique and indispensible book for any skier or snowboarder looking to visit this fascinating country.
Released in November 2009
â€˜â€™ At last – a really good guide to skiing in Japan ... It’s bright and breezy and generously illustrated with maps and inspirational photography, with sections on culture, history, food (of course), and the vexed question of the confusing signals many Japanese resorts send out about skiing or snowboarding in the backcountry. â€™â€™
â€˜â€™ we can't recommend it enough â€™â€™
â€˜â€™ it’s not only the best ski guide on Japan ever to have been published, but one of the best ski guides out there, full stop â€™â€™
â€˜â€™ absolutely recommended for any skier and snowboarder interested in what is almost certainly the most amazing snow country in the world â€™â€™
