Why we choose Japan?
You can be surprised for the result of this project. Hokkaido, this small island north of Honshū (is the main island of Japan). It receives between 15 and 20 meters of snow per season and by proximity to Siberia, temperatures are between -10º and -15ºC during the winter. As you can see, if you are looking for snow, it seems that this is the place to be
Furthermore, part of the team of "Shiro" We have several winters traveling to Japan to work as mountain guides and snowboard coachs, so in recent years we have been discovering more and more spots of this island that, if you follow us on our project, you will also discover and who knows, maybe the next one to travel there will be you.
And now, if nobody told you that before, you already know that Japan is one of the best destinations for snow, and this was the first reason why we decide to discover it, But when someone travels through that country it falls in love with his culture, his landscapes, the people, mmmm ... the food, etc.
This is how it was made, we traveled one month more than 2000km in a van around the island to tell it to you.
In addition, the documentary will be presented at different mountain festivals:
Pamplona Skimetraje, Barcelona Sports Film, Freeride film festival,...
¿Who we are?
Shiro's team is formed by a group sharing the same passion, the mountain and the snowboard. This passion gave us the opportunity to travel together different places on the planet to explore their mountains. After having been very cold together, we decided to start this adventure called Shiro (white in japanese), a very special project for all of us
