Tokyo, an urban city mixed with tradition and modern. It is not easy to describe this multi-faced city with a single word.
While many Tokyo introduction videos show especially interesting sides of Tokyo, there is a video that shows true Tokyo. It was filmed on an ordinary day at different parts of Tokyo for 24 hours, and edited in 10 minutes.
Titled “TOKYO CRUISE 2009,” it was made by a Japanese YouTube user egawauemon.
The high resolution video has no back ground music, so it makes you feel like you are actually there.
As you can see on the caption, it cruises in Tsukiji Fish Market, Akihabara, Shinjuku Kabuki-cho, Omoideyokocho, Shibuya Center Gai, Hachiko-mae, Spain-zaka, Ueno Ameyoko, Meiji Shrine, and Ginza.
egawauemon has the CRUISE series play list in YouTube. I recommend the Osaka and Fukuoka videos as well.
This is JAPAN Style!
