Snowboarding at Nagano

Assalamualaikum & good evening,

On 4th till 6th of January 2013, me with the others 39 of Malaysian student in Japan went to Hakuba Happo in Nagano Prefecture. Nagano is at the north of Kanagawa & Tokyo. During this winter season, Nagano is freezingly cold. Our trip this time mainly focused for snowboarding. And since this was my 1st time to snowboard, i felt excited+scared at the same time though. Snowboard, can be categorized under X-games & as the name goes, 'X' means extreme games. Thus, it can be a little dangerous especially to beginners. Well, this is what i called adventurous & i love to give it a try

Snowboard?! Challenge accepted! 


今年の1月4日から6日まで他の39人のマレーシアの留学生と一緒に白馬八方、長野へ行った。新年旅行とも言える(笑)。皆知ってると思う、長野県は東京の来たに位置し、寒さが東京より寒い。今回の旅はスノーボードを主な目的として、皆と一緒に冬休みの時間を過ごした。俺はスノーボードなんてやったことないから、この旅にすごくワクワクしてた。しかし、同時にちょっと不安な気持ちも持っていた。スノーボードは「X Games」の一つであり、「エックスゲーム」は極端なスポーツと言う意味である。「俺このスポーツに初心者として、大丈夫かなぁ~? ケガをしちゃうのかな?」こんな悩みがあったから、ちょっと気持ちが不安になっちゃう。でも、こんな冒険なスポーツと言っても、俺は冒険なことが好きだから、自分自身に挑戦したい。よっしゃ、やってみるぞ!

We departed from Shinjuku Station direct to Hakuba Happo, Nagano by express bus in the midnight of 4th January. The best part was, we rented the whole bus. That bus was ours....quite first experienced for me, haha. We arrived at our destination around 6.30 in the morning the next day (Japan local time). Since the main point of our travel was to play snowboard, there were no other things we done basically. So, i think from here....it's better for me to just show pictures.

A little information, Hakuba Happo is the longest ski track in Japan. It provides 8000m length of ski track in total. Previously became the official venue for Olympic Winter Games in 1998.

Finally, it's time to go back. We had so much fun snowboarding and maybe i'll put snowboard in my personal sports that i play. Seriously fun, cool & exciting. Despite the fact that it was really tired & my muscle feels stretched/tight all over my body. Throughout 3 days of snowboarding, i have managed to achieve my goals. Managed to learn the basic movement of snowboarding ; front brake & rear brake. Thank you to everyone who have taught me on how to snowboard & special thanks to bro Herry & Qudduus for organised such a splendid winter vacation. 

もうそろそろ帰り時間だ。三日間でスノーボードをやって、すごく楽しかった。俺の初めてスノーボードをやったけど、自分が設定した目標をなんとなく達した。ただ三日間で、二つとのブレーキスタイル(フロントブレーキとリアブレーキ)ができた。先輩のおかげで…教えてくれて、ありがとう先輩~! これから、スノーボードは俺の好きなスポーツです。^^ このような素敵な冬休みを提案された先輩に、本当にありがとう~! ヘリとクデゥース先輩;感謝します。
