Cool video by Australian filmmaker David Parkinson as he travelled through the heart of Japan with his girlfriend. Beautiful piece with top notch cinematography. Locations include Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Nara, Tokyo, Nagano and Hokkaido.

Time lapse video of Tokyo Sky Tree by Darwinfish105 [Jp]. The construction of the tower – the world’s tallest (634m) – was completed on February 29.
