Hg2’s Favourite Tokyo Videos

Neon, the whirring colour of cars, glass reflecting skyscrapers, shopping bags. Tokyo is photogenic. We rounded up a few cool videos that reflect just how well the Japanese capital goes down on film – not that you needed any proof.

Tokyo Slo-Mode            

This cool slow motion video captures Tokyo in the odd contrast of a busy day in the city caught in robotic slow-mo. We love the grainy filter that gives the people getting on and off the subway and boys playing at arcades a rather vintage feel.

This video of Dylan Rieder and Sammy Winter skateboarding through the streets of Tokyo really brings the city’s streets to life.

This cool Tokyo time-lapse video is set to an intriguing electronica track by Woob.

This really unusual video, which was shot using thousands of digital still photographs, follows the nighttime journey of an illuminated man from a crosswalk sign as he embarks on an adventure through the streets of Tokyo.

This strangely ethereal video was created as the camera took a trip around the conveyor at a sushi dive bar, capturing oddly intimate yet fleeting moments as the chefs create and the people eat.
