More info about Splitboarding in Japan:

Japan is one of the world’s top destinations for splitboarding, which combines backcountry skiing with snowboarding. Hokkaido may be one of the most popular spots to head out on the board, but it is far from the only one. Just an hour by train outside of Tokyo, Mount Fuji is a fan-favourite spot to head out on your splitboard. Spend a day climbing up to the top on the skins of the separated skis before getting an early start the next day to see the sunrise and careen down the mountain on your board. Nearby to Hokkaido, the island of Rishiri is offers incredible ocean views and plenty of excellent splitboarding too. Niseko and Sapporo are also nearby to the splitboarding hotspot and offer other excellent options as well
