Take a journey through the sights, sounds, and sensations of Japan in this 35mm stop motion film shot on Kodak Portra 400.

“The idea was to capture the feeling of traveling through Japan in search of moments of calm (skiing and surfing) amongst the chaos.” – Rob Heule

Music by: Takeshi Terauchi – Mamuro-Gawa Ondo

Overstimulate your senses in the perpetual hustle of Tokyo. Feel the slightest resistance as the powder eases your decent through Nagano’s deciduous forests. Feel the salty spray and push of the ocean’s energy while gliding along a glassy aquamarine Miyazaki peeler. Jimoto Inu shares the search for the thrill of gliding all over Japan.
