One Japanuary, with the forecast coloring up for consecutive foot-a-day snowfall, we traveled with Sammy Carlson, Karl Fostvedt, and Lucas Wachs to a land so foreign it doesn’t seem quite real. Two planes, 2 trains, navigating Tokyo Station with ski bags, a bullet train across to the west coast, 3 hours over a snowy pass only wide enough for one car at best, and 2 days lost in transition – and the trio converged on Hakuba just as one of the biggest systems of the season touched down.

This is 7 days in Japan wrapped up into 5 minutes.
