Nakama means 'family' in Japanese.
Episode 3 shows the people who help make Rusutsu the place that it is. You know that the snow and hospitality in Japan are legendary, but without the employees highlighted in this episode then Rusutsu would not be able to serve breakfast or turn on the lifts each morning.
These are just a few of the greater Rusutsu family members who find enjoyment in seeing the joy of others. Without them a journey to Japan would not be the same.
The Nakama episode reveals those behind the scenes who are the ones making all travel experiences unforgettable. Everywhere one can visit there are individuals who strive to make the experience perfect. When you leave satisfied, it should be clear that these characters who are depicted, and many more, are members of the Rusutsu family that has welcomed you into their home for a visit.
