This film is a collection of audiovisual moments and memories of a 3-week railway journey through Japan in 2015. We were whizzing through the country with the Shinkansen visiting Tokyo, Osaka, Hiroshima and Kyoto as well as lots of wonderful little places along the way, meeting the most friendly people and experiencing a culture that somehow balances its rich tradition with a very futuristic present.
A journey through the heart of Japan with my Girlfriend.
Directed, filmed and edited by: David Parkinson
Music: Bon Iver - Holocene (Message to Bears Remix)
