Imagine going on your first trip to Japan, touching down in Sapporo, then heading into the Backcountry of Kiroro. You gear up and start slaying pow, getting face shot after glorious face shot. Then all of sudden you find yourself in a washing machine of emotion, tumbling around like WTF? While this all sounds totally crazy, this is exactly what happened to Alex Rodway on his first trip to Japan. Lucky for us, Alex was a true savage and had his GoPro recording the entire thing. Watch the clip above and see what happens when you disturb the feared Kodama, which are known as the Japanese tree spirits.
