It’s almost impossible to capture the character of a place as unique as Tokyo, but UK-based cinematographer Christoph Gelep has done a damn good job. His dynamic hyperlapse video presents the city at its most alive, inspiring, and wanderlust-sparking.
The film was shot over a 5-day trip to the Japanese capital in January 2016. “It was my first time visiting Japan, a place I had always wanted to see,” writes Gelep. “With a population of 35 million, Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world. Due to this, I soon realised how lively and energetic this city really is.”
