If you aren’t already convinced that Japan is one of the coolest countries on Earth, this video might do the trick. ‘In Japan’ is a collection of audiovisual moments and memories from a 3-week railway journey in 2015. The high quality cinematography and epic drone shots are guaranteed to inspire serious wanderlust.
Freelance filmmakers Vincent Urban, Alex Schiller, and Alex Tank, who all hail from Munich, captured the footage as they whizzed through Japan on the high-speed Shinkansen. Their travels took them through Tokyo, Osaka, Hiroshima and Kyoto, plus plenty of charming little places along the way.
‘In Japan’ manages to condense the rich culture of the country into just four minutes. On one hand, Japan is a futuristic, technological wonderland of flashing lights and frenetic city streets. On the other, it’s a place steeped in rich tradition, filled with ethereal forests and spectacular natural vistas. Both sides are expertly displayed here, ensuring that you’ll want to drop whatever you’re doing and book plane tickets immediately.
