An eclectic crew of European skaters cruise out to explore some pristine Japanese architecture. Our international squad was made up of Basque Country ripper Alain Goikoetxea, Spanish skaters Dani Lopez de Ipiña and Alain Saavedra, Eniz Fazliov from Finland, and Axel Cruysberghs of Belgium. Together, they converged on Japan to explore the cities and countryside of the land of cherry blossoms.
Our friends from Volcom Japan were expecting us, and were nice enough to show us the best spots Tokyo had to offer. Some were quite famous and had been documented many times, but others were totally unknown – and incredible.
