Frozen Furano Frenzy

Our good friends Meagan, John, and Josh came up to visit us last weekend from Osaka to indulge in the snowy deliciousness of Hokkaido. As it was a pretty melty and sunshiny week for us here in Sapporo, we decided to head to Furano (in the center of Hokkaido) where we figured the snow would be a little heavier for some good boarding and onsening.

First stop in Furano wasn't the slopes, however, but instead for some delicious wood-fired pizza:

If you can believe it, with Jacob's crazy work schedule this year, this was his first chance of the year to hit the slopes:

And, while the boarding wasn't nearly as powdery as we had expected (Furano apparently had just as many sunshiny days as we did), we did stumble upon a hot pancake drink complete with butter and maple syrup flavorings! Ahhh, Japan:

Had a great time with the Osaka crew and looking forward to visiting them on their home-turf down south in a few weeks!!!
