Three friends, Vincent Urban, Alex Schiller, Alex Tank documented their 3 week trip travelling through Japan in an absolutely top notch video on Vimeo which delivers an exciting whirlwind tour of Tokyo, Osaka, Hiroshima and Kyoto at the pace and efficiency of a Japanese bullet train. The video perfectly blends classic imagery of Japan, their rich culture and impressive historical buildings and natural beauty with our other notion of Japan, one of a futuristic society, modern, progressive and forward thinking. The video creators describe it perfectly: “meeting the most friendly people and experiencing a culture that somehow balances its rich tradition with a very futuristic present”.
Japan is a top travel destination, suitable for almost any type of traveller, but is one of those destinations many North American’s say they will one day visit, but never do.
This video should help with any indecision!
