    Their "no-plans" trip that we followed when they were high school students became super popular in Japan. Their style is very unique, they'd close their eyes and point one of their fingers at a Lonely Planet Japan guide book to decide where to go next.

    Our show has followed them several times already and the news spread to Denmark that they were invited to the local TV show. They have a habit to open up their eyes when eating yummy food.

    The "Pointing-Finger YOU" Jonathan and Alexander are back in Japan from Denmark for the first time in 2 years! This time the show is going to support them in making their dream come true. Their dream is to experience hot springs, crabs and marimos in Hokkaido!


  • Enjoy the spacious open-air hot spring.

    After an airplane, bus and train ride to Hokkaido they arrive at "Kawayu Onsen", a very famous hot spring that represents Hokkaido. Immediately after they check in to the hotel "Yunokaku Ikedaya" they decide to experience a hot spring that they've been dreaming of. The largest open-air hot spring in Kawayu Onsen area!<br />*Closed during winter.

    After enjoying the hot spring it's time for dinner. So many delicious looking plates are in front of them and on top of that the boat-like sashimi plate has arrived which surprised them big time! Then the crabs arrive… which has been one of their dreams. They are amazed with the size and beauty of snow crabs that they couldn't stop opening their eyes.

    To make their third dream come true they are headed to Akanko to get to see marimos. Wild marimos are very rare and now seen in Akanko in Japan and Lake Oisu in Estonia only. They never get bored of looking at them, it's been 15 minutes…

    Now that their dreams came true it is time to decide their next destination by pointing a finger at a Lonely Planet Japan guide book. The spot that has been pointed is… Goryokaku in Hakodate, which is 636km, 10 hours away by car, train, bus and train again. They've told us about Kastellet in Denmark which has the same shape as Goryokaku.

    The next destination chosen by their finger is Nakashima, Toyako which is 161km, 2 hours away from Hakodate where the 5th G8 Summit was held. But the island could not be reached during the winter time so they've enjoyed the lake by a ferry ride.

    The next destination chosen by their finger is "Furano" which is 304km, 4 hours away from Toya station. Jonathan received a business card from a fan of the show who runs a restaurant in Furano 2 years ago but it's unfortunately closed. They ended up enjoying some good food such as grilled venison at a place they've randomly picked up.

    Their final destination is "Anamizu", Ishikawa prefecture which is another 1,194km, 21.5 hours away to follow their important memory and visit their Japanese parents. They still keep in touch with the Isono family by exchanging letters but this visit is a total surprise. They enjoy the sushi made specially for them as if they've come home. To finish off the night they've sang a song written in Japanese by them to thank the family.
