Let's Look at Japan from the Sky!



I just saw this show for the first time 空から日本を見てみよう / Sora kara nihon o mite miyo / Let's Look at Japan from the Sky!

It's so cool. On the one I watched they followed a train line up in Tokyo. The two commentators, who are clouds which you don't see, talk to people and comment on the landscape. Practically porn for geography majors! They hunt for playground animals and triangle shaped houses among other things.

There's some videos on the show's website.

Here's an 1:30 long show here, but you need to install their player to watch the whole thing. A 5 minute long version is available however. This episode goes from Tokyo to Ise Shrine in Mie Prefecture.

I watched this when you emailed it to me. It's so fun and kind of relaxing, hahaha. I could see you totally nerding out about it too.
