The food on this trip was good enough to merit its own post. While in Japan, we had the best noodles, tempura, and sushi we have ever had.
We also had the pleasure of eating many bowls of ramen, each one seeming even better than the last. The one above was a king crab ramen that was just amazing.
In Tokyo we managed to eat with some of the locals and our last bowl of ramen surrounded by a bunch of Japanese slurping their soup all around us.

After a 9.5 hour flight, four hour layover, two hour flight and two hour bus ride we arrived in Niseko. Living in Australia has definitely redefined our ideas of a "reasonable" flight since it's so far from everything.
Our video of skiing is too awesome/big for blogger to handle. CLICK HERE to view it on youtube.
Be sure to click on the little gear in the lower right hand corner of the youtube window and up the resolution.

Sooooo much snow
Nice lines in the trees

Sunshine and powder

Overall the skiing part of the trip was amazing. Although the mountains were not as big as the ones in the western US, the snow was as good as we have seen. Niseko is a world class ski destination and we had an awesome time!!!!
