              Houshi Ryokan was founded around 1,300 years ago and it has always been managed by the same family since then. 
It is the oldest still running family business in the world. This ryokan (a traditional japanese style hotel) was built over a natural hot spring in Awazu in central Japan in the year 718. Until 2011, it held the record for being the oldest hotel in the world. 
 Houshi Ryokan has been visited by the Japanese Imperial Family and countless great artists over the centuries. Its buildings were destroyed by natural disasters many times, but the family has always rebuilt. The garden as well as some parts of the hotel are over 400 years old. Houshi (法師) means buddhist priest. It is the name of the family as well as of the hotel. (It's great if you want to share the video, but DON'T publish any still images or screenshots from it without my permission!)

                Wonderful London in 1924 and 2014 In 1924, Harry B. Parkinson and Frank Miller documented London in a fantastic series of short films, known as "Wonderful London". Over the last few months, I have stood in their foot-steps, recapturing their shots exactly, and have blended the two together creating a window through time. The music used is Symphony No. 4 by Gustav Mahler The recording is credited to Steve Jones Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0 The composition is now in the public domain, and more information can be found on this great website … http://imslp.org/wiki/Symphony_No.4_(Mahler,_Gustav) Wonderful London is available on DVD from the BFI here … http://www.bfi.org.uk/blu-rays-dvds/wonderful-london Making this short follows my previous film “London in 1927 and 2013” tracing the footsteps of Claude Friese-Greene.

A chronological journey from the Beatles’ use of the Mellotron in the 60s to the sample dense hiphop and dance music of the 80s and 90s. Each break is represented by a vibrating vinyl soundwave exploding into various tracks that sampled it, each re-use another chapter in the modern narrative. THANKS to WhoSampled.com

                      About 20 years ago this missile base in Türisalu was abandoned by Soviet army. Now it is just a surrealistic landscape, where nature shows its power and some fans have found a perfect place for airsofting. And some crazy people with their cameras like to make videos there... :-))) Canon 60D with 50mm/f1.4 lens Magic Bullet.
