A young Japanese woman arrived in Zermatt from Seoul to see the Matterhorn. She had been dreaming of this mountain for a long time. The Matterhorn is an icon in her country and, even as a child, she had a very intimate relationship with snow and mountains. Some of her friends travelled with her, forming a group that met regularly to make long trips to Europe.
