東京を上空から見た美しい動画 / Awesome Video of Tokyo Skyscrapers

自分の住んでいる街はついつい見慣れてしまい、嫌な面ばかりが目につきがちですが、これはそんな気分を晴らしてくれる素晴らしい動画です。

朝から夜、曇りから晴れへと様々に景色が移り変わる中、悠然とそびえ立つ東京(新宿)の超高層ビル群が圧巻です。
フルスクリーンにしてご覧になる事をお勧めします。

東京の夜景も捨てたもんじゃないですね。

東京の他の地域も上空から見たいという方は、押井 守監督が六本木ヒルズのオープニングイベント用に作製したTokyo Scannerという動画もお勧めです。
渋谷のスクランブル交差点は特にうまく撮影されていると思います。
ヘリコプターの振動を吸収する特殊機材を使用して空中から撮影したというこの映像は一見の価値ありです。

“Awesome View of Tokyo Skyscrapers”

This is a time-lapse wonderful video of skyscrapers in Tokyo.
You should watch this at full screen!

These skyscrapers seen in this video are located in an area called Shinjuku and it’s not a full view of Tokyo.
It is just only one of the busy area in Tokyo and there are several more.

35 million people are living in greater Tokyo and this is twice of its of New York City incl New Ark (18 million).
And more than 3 million people are using Shinjuku station each and every day.

Great Video! but I feel small somehow..

If you are interested in other areas of Tokyo, click here to watch video “Tokyo Scanner” filmed by Mamoru Oshii, the famous Japanese film/anime director. (Works: Ghost In The Shell, Patlabor, Urusei Yatsura etc)

  2. Thanks Didz, I'm always in the office/home but this video reminds me how beautiful the blue sky is.

    I believe brunei also have a good seafoods. Then all you need to make a hand-rolled sushi is Sashimi (sliced raw fish), Nori (dried seaweed), and Sushi Rice (vinegared rice).
    Just put Sushi Rice and Sashimi on the Nori and roll it. that’s all.

    I will continue my effort to find any tips on Sushi anyway!
