Short documentary of two Finnish freeskiers Kimmo "Skipe" Oivo and Jani Johansén on their virgin trip to Japan.
Skiing in the land of the rising sun has been the dream for them for a decade. After a dry winter at the Alps Skipe and Jani teamed up with MaxSport.tv and set up a trip to the far East. The aim was not just to find epic pow but also to enjoy the wonderful cuisine Japan and especially Hokkaido have to offer.
