We have left the best until last! Episode 4 is the final for the 2013 season and the crew made sure we ended with a bang.
After being piled into the Rhythm Van for far too many hours the crew are able to escape for long enough to experiment with some One Foot shenanigans and double corks all while scoring some incredible snow in the northern most parts of Japan.
The crew, consisting of Nick Hyne, Nick Brown, Connor Harding and Alex Stewart make their way from Niseko as far north as the Japanese roads will let them go, Wakkanai. In fact just another 5 hour ferry ride and they would have made it to Russia.
An epic road trip to see off the 2013 season.
Japan Journals is a snowboarding web series based out of the fluffy depths of Japan's snow covered wilderness.

Mat Galina is possibly the hardest working snowboarder on the planet!
Mat backs up winters in the Southern Hemisphere to his homeland of Kelowna in Canada. Chasing the endless snow, Mat works full time as the lead Falls Creek Park Crew member during the season downunder.
This winter Mat set his sights high, crossing a 60 metre stretch of lake at over 80km/h, built run-ins that looked more like boarder-cross tracks and sent it on the largest gap to wall-ride feature the southern hemisphere has ever seen.
Mat Galina is proudly supported by 3CS Outerwear, Radical Gloves, BeaverWax, Sandboxland, Rhythm Boardstore Cooma and Now Bindings.
Oi Mate! An Olliepop Films series, proudly presented by Boardworld.
