“The Freeride Girl” Skier Nat Segal - 5 Niseko Stories

During the winter of 2015/2016 My House Pictures, a Higashiyama-based production company, was out and about in Niseko capturing a look at winter with the Niseko apparel company OYUKI's team riders for the new film "5 Niseko Stories".

The team riders featured, Toshiya Kasuga, Nat Segal, Yohei Sasaki, Boen Ferguson, Harrison McInnes, Adam Kroenert, Charlie Steinbacher, Rikuto Ohashi, Matt Hampton are joined by Olympic snowboarder Jenny Jones and backcountry guide Owain Bassett.

Filmed on some of the best days of the season “5 Niseko Stories” provides a great perspective of the type of conditions and terrain that make Niseko Japan’s #1 snow destination.

The film tells 5 uniquely Niseko stories. The first is “The Zone” which is shot beyond the ropes with Lincoln Taylor’s Big Wave Snow-cat Tours and Par Darlin’s PPP. The second is "Yohei Sasaki", the third "Nat Segal", the fourth "Boen Ferguson" and the final "Toshiya Kasuga". The film differs from most snowsports films in that it takes you into the lives of each character and provides a look at winter in Niseko from a local and visitor perspective.

The soundtrack includes hit music from "Boy and Bear”, “Angus and Julia Stone” and “Hermitude”. Shot entirely in 5K widescreen “5 Niseko Stories” is the second Niseko-based film from award winning photographer Shane Peel and follows on from his highly successful debut film “Snowsurf” . “5 Niseko Stories” is made possible thanks to Oyuki Apparel, Experience Niseko, Rhythm Japan, Sontimer Eyewear.
