Life in this sprawling metropolis moves at quite a pace with new restaurants and bars opening up on a daily basis across the city. People work and play hard here meaning there’s always something exciting to sink your teeth into. Take a trip around town and meet some of the locals with our five favourite Tokyo videos.
This beautifully shot video focuses on that most Japanese of flowers – the cherry blossom. We love looking at the different types of blossom on show at Tokyo’s Hamarikyu Gardens in this atmospheric film.
We love this fast-paced film of Tokyo by Alex Lee & Kyle Wightman, not only because of its fantastic selection of city scenery but also because of its super stylish special effects.
Lukas Backland’s film of Tokyo is a particular favourite because of the range of local characters included in the edit. Everyone from street musicians to young fashionistas and even lowly commuters get their moment in the spotlight.
With its wonderful selection of everyday imagery, this time-lapse video provides a fantastic window into life this dynamic city. We especially like the scenes of businessmen winding down after a long day at gambling arcades and slot machines.
This personal account of a week in Tokyo offers up some great scenes of the local restaurant and bar scene including everything from street food to sushi and karaoke clubs.
