Kyoto in Hyper Motion is Awesome!

Kinkaku-ji Kiyomizu-dera Fushimi Inari Taisha Video First Time in Japan Kyoto

What’s the most beautiful city in Japan? In this masterfully edited Glidecam film, Osamu Hasegawa makes a strong case for Kyoto—the ancient, elegant former seat of Japan’s imperial court.

Highlighting the brilliant colors of autumn, this virtual visit serves as a perfect introduction to the City of Ten Thousand Shrines, from the stunning Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji to the intricate maze of narrow streets crisscrossing Gion and Pontocho.

Lose yourself in the stunning visuals (and try not to get distracted by the slightly incongruous synthesized soundtrack!).
