360° VR Video Transports You to Japan

| Video , Tokyo

The European division of Japan National Tourism Organisation (JNTO) brought us one of the most gorgeous tourism promotional videos ever, and boy did it not disappoint with its fast-paced yet smooth cinematography. In the second installation of their popular video series, the organization has teamed up with Enjin Tokyo Inc. once again to bring us yet another extraordinary perspective of Japan.

Viewers get to travel through the beautiful gates of Fushimi Inari Taisha, the magnificent Sagano Bamboo Forest Road and even end up in a wacky monster café in Harajuku. What’s more, viewers can pan the camera around to see everything around them! 360-degree video technology is by no means new, but it has not seen much usage in tourism videos, where it could arguably reap the most benefits.

Japan’s blend of traditional and modern cultures makes it a unique travel destination, and it’s thanks to JNTO that we get to witness this wonderful fusion of new and old in the comfort of our homes.
