Will it Vend?

Deep in the Japanese backcountry, you will find vending machines a plentiful. Crack open a cold Pocari Sweat and enjoy the ride.

In February of 2019, we made our way to Japan for a few weeks to soak up all of the onsen water on the Northern island of Hokkaido. We once again found ourselves deep in the endless snow that Japan is famous for.

Lucky enough to see a few afternoons of sunshine and even a weather window, we summited Mount Yotei while the snow quality degraded during our last few days of the trip.
