Snowboard In Japan – the doco

During this February’s trip to Furano in Japan, Iao and I will be making a feature length documentary about snowboarding and Japanese culture.  We will be covering topics such as:

  • Tokyo
  • Sapporo Ice festival
  • Ice climbing
  • Ice fishing
  • Snow sledding
  • Snow mobiling
  • Snowboarding
  • Japanese cuisine
  • Japanese drinking culture
  • Karaoke


The finished documentary will be an entertaining insight into the Japanese culture, and will highlight the diverse cultural and sporting pursuits you can enjoy during a winter getaway to Japan.

Part of our production plan is to interview as many and varied interesting local Japanese people and fellow travellers as we can on our journey.  Our conversations with these people will allow our viewers to see Japan though the eyes of a wide cross-section of people.

If you live in Sapporo, Furano or the surrounding areas or plan to be there in the first half of February 2010 and would like to be included in the documentary, then please drop us a line by adding a comment to this post.  We’ll be in touch.  Alternatively if you know of anybody that would mak a good candidate to be included in our documentary, then please pass on their details or direct them to this website to ge in touch with us.

Candidates we speak with on camera will be engaged in polite, open conversation on any interesting topics about Japan, snowboarding and their life and experiences.  This is a chance for locals and other travellers to tell their story, express their views and be included as part of this exciting project.
