Oystein, Arland, Alex and Jonas4 close friends from NorwayBecause there's water. No matter how cold it is, they don't care! Everything they do is so wild and unpredictable.
Super excited naked boys in the coldest water.
4 close friends reunited in Japan for the first time in 3 years.
The "Niseko Boys" has returned to Japan!
They wanted to get together in Japan at the same time when Arland was going to arrive in Japan during his around-the-world cruise but because of the strong winds he took a plane from the Philippines. We're all excited to see each other again! Let the crazy trip begin!Kansai International Airport

The highest priority is to go into the water no matter how cold it is.
"Niseko Boys" is a group of 4 friends, Oystein, Arland, Alex and Jonas from Norway, and they enjoy outdoor activities in their unique way. How they do them is always unpredictable and often crazy. They'd jump into a cold river in Niseko during the winter time being even sick, go rafting in the melted snow water river completely naked, crack the ice that's covering a lake to go into the water, etc...so crazy.
1,400km to Niseko, Hokkaido.
The boys have somehow decided to drive all the way to Niseko which is 1,400km away from the Kansai International Airport. After 7 hours of driving on the expressway without doing any sightseeing, they finally decide to stop over in Nagano prefecture to buy some food and gas at a super market and arrive in Nozawaonsen Village. Asking around for a place to sleep the 5th house they've visited kindly let them use their garage.
Beer at one gulp!
The boys visit the bar owned by the owner of the garage Sato-san and drink a glass of beer at one gulp. Even how they drink beer is crazy. They all seem to have had a great time enjoying the "Russian Roulette Takoyaki" which one of them had a spicy sauce inside.Nozawaonsen Village

2 degrees Celsius outside but don't care! Jumping into the water from a tree with no clothes on.
The next morning the boys say good-bye to Sato-san and leave for Niseko. After one hour of driving they find a "cool spot", a pond surrounded with snow of course. There's no way they won't get in but this time in a very weird way. The temperature is 2 degrees Celsius and they start climbing up the tree to jump into the water. The usual "it's very warm today", as getting out of water.
A new sport? Skiing in a single pair of underpants.
After 10 hours of driving on the expressway the boys get off at Aomori exit at 3am to get on the ferry for Hokkaido! They arrive in Niseko 3 hours and a half later and immediately check on the snow condition, and of course manage to find a river! They make the staff wait for 10 minutes and show up in a single pair of underpants. They start skiing towards the river and of course jump in...it's 4 degrees Celsius out.
Setting up the tent by the Yakitori restaurant where it smells awesome.
The boys have settled in Niseko they now have to look for a place to set up their tents. They know where to go, the Yakitori restaurant where they slept 3 years ago. They visit the restaurant without an appointment but the owner remembers them and kindly lets them stay again!
Are their skins made of iron? Don't care if the river is frozen.
After enjoying the ride in Niseko the boys decide to check out the river where they became famous for. The water level is lower than 3 years ago but still they enjoy the frozen river. The first-timer Alex and Jonas seem to be enjoying as well. As usual we've been able to film some unforgettable images of the "Niseko Boys".
We're looking forward to seeing you again in Japan!Nisekocho, Abuta-gun, Hokkaido
