A great afternoon out at the Hakuba ski jump today… The Japan National Championship Nordic Ski Jump event is on this week, and this afternoon we were lucky to catch some of the training sessions. We headed down to the jump at about 3pm to watch some of Japan’s best warm up for tomorrow’s championships.

The distances these guys and girls can fly is incredible – some of them airborne for up to 97m (well done Kobayashi), launching off at 81km/h. It was so awesome to see up close & personal.

If you’re in Hakuba this week, there are a few more remaining championship events: Sunday 27 Feb and Monday 28 Feb from 7am-9am, weather permitting. Might see you out there!
