JTJ - Journey to Japan #2

Today's our last day in Niseko before we head out to Asahidake, the highest mountain on Hokkaido.
Niseko was pretty good and we had some fun times. The snow isn't as much as we hoped to be but definitely enough to shoot.
Yesterday we had a guide who took us up on a peak in the backcountry where we found loads of spots to shoot. Since the snow situation in Europe is so crappy, just about every film crew is here in Japan right now. We met the Pirates yesterday at one spot which they wanted to hit but couldn't cause the Salomon crew was already there too. And I heard there are about 5 or 6 other film crews in Asahidake right now. Gonna be a fight for the spots.

Anyways, Japan is great, crew is great...looking forward to the rest of the trip.

Ullr is always with me on my avalanche beacon.

"Caution! A waterfall is there!" Thanks for the hint.


Sushi heaven.

This is the view I woke up to every morning.

Niseko backcountry after the hike. Weather like this is very rare in Japan. The guide told us they have about 5-10 days of bluebird maximum every season. So we lucked out with 1 sunny day.

Fips, ready to drop in.

Kevin and Mt. Yotei.

Me, all sweaty after the hike but glad to be on top.

Updates will follow.
