Xavier and his better half, Beanie, head to the village of Nozawa Onsen in Japan to track down the snow they couldn’t find in their home range of the French Alps. Cool little tidbit about the village:
“Nozawa Onsen is thought to have been founded by a Buddhist monk in the year 724, during the period of the Japanese Emperor Shomu. It’s known as a Yuyama village, or hot spring mountain town. More importantly, it’s also known for having one of the heaviest snowfalls in the Nagano region – and it certainly lived up to its reputation.”
….hot springs after a day blasting Japow, yes please!
