Neil Hartmann

Long-time Hokkaido resident Neil Hartmann wears many hats. During his 30-year Japan career he is a Director, photographer, editor, small cafe owner, Airbnb host, Youtuber, Instagrammer and Snowboarder. The father of three girls is the creator of the snowboard movie series “Car Danchi." He was the MC at the Nagano Olympic snowboard halfpipe competition in 1998 and DJ on Hokkaido’s FM radio station Air-G from the early to late 90’s. Neil formed a small creative company called IAC (I am Creative inc.) and he now jumps from one project to the next, directing TV commercials for Hokkaido resorts and promoting tourism in Hokkaido and has a long history working with brands like The North Face, Fingercroxx and more. Secretly he yearns to do nothing more than travel with his family and make fun movies about life to share with the world through his YouTube! Channel.
