Inspired by the movies and goz who has helped answer tons of my questions, I decided to tick another off the bucketlist and spend this season living in this Toyota bB.

Teine needs a wee top up.....as I was leaving the snow clouds moved in but I don't know how much if any will fall. Still clear and sunny at city level

ah I saw your photos on Facebook.......it looked amazing. Unfortunately i missed out on it cos I was down in Kanagawa. Was at Teine yesterday for a few hours, good fun but tracked and bumpy through windblown powder. Paradise was still nice and untracked though a little heavy.

I'm heading to Rusutsu tomorrow, hoping this snow front thats forecast to move in this afternoon will top it up nicely :D

BTW since you are living in a car you may be itching (literally!) for a wash and a soak in a bath. There's a very nice large super sento fake onsen near to Teine on route 5, called Honoka ほのか.....750¥ to get in. If coming from Teine, follow the access road down to route 5 and turn right (Sapporo direction), it's a little bit along the road on your left....you can't miss it
