The cherry trees have bloomed, but it’s still a chilly early spring day in Osaka.
The lively movement of the young bodies and their muscle and sweat made beautiful images. The filming crew followed their track competitions and riverside training closely, and captured their youthful expressions during the training intervals. They filmed early in the morning and after school from dusk to dark, on a boat, in busy downtown and at an observation tower. The filming crew went wherever and whenever they were needed to fully portray the junior athletes advancing with determined spirits and their home city of Osaka.
Filmed: April, 2016 in Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture
