TokyoStreetView: Tokyo International Forum (4K VIDEO)
From the Editor:
We love sharing awe-inspiring videos of the seething Shibuya scramble intersection or marveling at the eye-in-the-sky tilt-shift time lapse work of darwinfish105, but we also enjoy slower, contemplative slices of Tokyo life. With that in mind, we hope you enjoy our latest video feature, presented in beautiful 4K (don't forget to dial up the YouTube resolution!).
Tokyo International Forum
Located a few steps from Tokyo Central Station and just in front of Yūrakuchō Station, the Tokyo International Forum is one of the city’s best known architectural marvels. Designed by Rafael Viñoly and completed in 1996, the Tokyo International Forum is in fact two huge complexes separated by a courtyard where pedestrians and businessmen alike can come for a rest.
To be fair, the Tokyo International Forum is a tourist location that we really can only recommend to people interested in architecture. It is a business-focused forum and there is pretty much nothing to do there most of the week with the exception of the Odeo Antique Market held from 9am to 4pm on the first and third Sundays of the month.
Still, interested in architecture or not, the beauty of the eastern wing, which is shaped like a gigantic glass ship, is something to see and experience once in your life!

Beautiful Japan; a Love Story.
Japan is a world apart from everything you know. It’s a place like no other, built on centuries of tradition and unrivaled attention to detail. Japan is a cultural Galapagos out of reach for many, and it often remains an untouched mystery even for the lucky few who’ve come to call it their home.
A True Contemplative Experience.
TokyoStreetView is born of a passion for life in Japan, and the series aims to offer others around the world a chance to enjoy a bias-free experience of its many wonders. Unlike other videos you may find on Japan, TokyoStreetView’s are purely contemplative: our camera(s) are your eyes and our tripod is your chair, just sit with us, relax, and let an amazing world unfold in front of you in a succession of short ~10-second sequences of RAW 4K video.
We hope our passion for this mesmerizing country will touch your heart, and, though our videos, you’ll feel some of the wonder we held from the first day we set foot on this beautiful archipelago.
