TokyoStreetView: Tokyo Seaside Upper Observatory (4K VIDEO)
From the Editor:
On the tech side of our original video coverage, there's nothing better than the IREX international robotics trade show, or if cars are your thing, the DRiFTWiRED music video shot in the mountains of Tochigi is one of a kind, but we also share more contemplative, day to day slices of Japanese life. In the vein of the latter, we hope you enjoy this beautiful 4K collection (don't forget to dial up the YouTube resolution!).
Tokyo Seaside Upper Observatory
While it is very difficult to disagree that the best observatory in Tokyo is either Tokyo Skytree or Tokyo Tower, one could argue that these places are overly organized and efficient and don’t let you enjoy the actual building itself.
As a wonderful alternative, if you are looking for the perfect place to enjoy gorgeous scenic views of Odaiba, Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Skytree, and Shiodome in a relatively relaxing and casual setting - then search no further: the Tokyo Seaside Upper Observatory, located on top of WTCB or Tokyo World Trade Center, is the place to go!
Lastly, since we always welcome a good discount, we recommend checking out the brochure and printing the coupon available here (PDF).
From the Contributor:
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, through our videos, you’ll feel some of the wonder we held from the first day we set foot on this beautiful archipelago.
