Dive into Tokyo's Most Beautiful Streets

Temples Shopping Video Temples & Shrines Tokyo Shotengai Kanto

Tokyo has more than a few unique streets. Video visionary Osamu Hasegawa takes a dive into some choice spots in the city, leading us on an exhilarating tour of bargain shops on Ameyoko shopping street south of Ueno, the high-end fashion selections of Omotesando, and the traditional wares of Denpoin Dori shopping street south of Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa.

We're treated to the historical shopping streets along the way to Jindaiji Temple in Chofu, western Tokyo, as well as the delightful restaurants hidden in the tight streets and arcades northwest of Kichijoji Station. Hasegawa intersperses these with generous shots of Tokyo Station and its swanky surrounds, including the Tokyo Imperial Palace and Tokyo International Forum, throwing in shots of Tokyo Skytree and the Statue of Liberty replica at Odaiba for good measure.

We thought we'd seen it all, but Hasegawa's eye makes us want to get back out on Tokyo's streets and explore all over again!
