Ikigai: The Shin Biyajami Story
Shin Biyajima, a Japanese snowboarder, shares the intimate story of how he found his Ikigai (生きがい) or “reason for being” through a lifetime of adoration and exploration of his mountainous backyard of Nagano, Japan. Joined by American snowboarder Travis Rice, Ikigai is an immersion into Shin’s life, Japanese mountain culture, and the similarities between two friends who despite being an ocean apart, grew up with two things in common; the mountain as a classroom and a deep affinity for board riding.
