SCENE IN TOKYO: Tama Monorail High Above Tachikawa
This short clip was shot from an elevated walkway approximately 15 feet (4.5 m) above ground, which places the Tama Monorail’s track roughly 50 feet (15 m) in the air. Trains in the sky totally look like the future came early.
Japanese senior citizen fashion and cuisine in full effect! Strolling down this 800m-long street, you will find no less than 200 shops that sell pretty much everything that a Japanese senior citizen needs and loves.

Tokyo Marathon Brings out the Cosplayers (SFW GALLERY)
It comes as no surprise then that the subculture-gone-mainstream finds purchase in a 36,000-strong public sporting event. All we really have to say about that is: “WELL DONE! BRAVO! YOU ALL LOOKED FABULOUS!”
