To the North
Kita no hō e
Ken works at the Konbini and Sho is bored - the boys need an adventure, a road trip. Life is too short for monotony. A ride is quickly found and on their way they meet a beautiful girl, a bad man, an affectionate ballet teacher and a singing cook among others. And all of this with the probably coolest car in the world.

His film "To the North" was made possible by a crowdfunding campaign. Neighbor sees this film that was shot in 15 days and on a budget of only 72,000 dollars as a test: “I wanted to show that you can make a Japanese film that will have quality and a great story that people will want to see for the budgets that they have here. "
