There were many cool bikes and very fast riders!

Then, on Wednesday May 3rd, he went to Hakuba, site of the 1998 Winter Olympics. It is one of the most beautiful mountain areas in Japan, truly like heaven!

Justin usually skis at Happo-1 ski area for Golden Week, but this year Happo closed in late-April.

But, Nozawa Snow Resort was still open, with beautiful snow on the top of the mountain.

He took the gondola up to the top.

And skied some great moguls!!

After skiing, he went to Nozawa Onsen village, and then had a delicious banana + Nutella milk shake with shredded coconut!

He stayed at the Cottage Hoshikage in Hakuba for 2 nights, it was very relaxing and purifying!

Great trip Justin sensei!
