Oguri Shun scales mountains for filming of "Gaku"

“Gaku,” starring Oguri Shun has finished shooting and the movie will be released sometime in 2011. Oguri plays the role of a mountain rescuer in the Japan alps. The movie is based on a manga in "Big Comic Original" and recieved awards in 2008 and 2009.

Oguri started training 7 months ago for this movie by climbing 10 mountains, as well as learning rescue skills.
Oguri said, “Ioh-dake was the hardest. I did not know that snow could give me so much pain.”
The Ioh-dake mountain that he mentioned has altitude of 2,760 meter and when he climbed the mountain in February, the temperature was -25℃.

After all the hard training Oguri went through, he overcame his fear of heights. (tokyohive)
