View from Above- Japan (3:32) Kancho's familiar favorite places
As a Japanese sightseeing spot, only Kyoto and Tokyo are famous.But the leading role of this video is Hakone-jinja which is the my neighborhood shrine. (However, it is two hours by car from my home.It is in Hakone national park having Mount Fuji and the big lake (Lake Ashinoko).)This Shinto shrine is the place where my wife and me had the wedding ceremony, and it is in the prefecture where we live.Other locations are only the places where I have been to, too.For such a reason, I want to introduce this video as my (Kancho Omoto) familiar favorite place.
My favorite video clip for the introduction of Japan. "My JAPAN - Where tradition meets the future "This movie vividly portrays the traditional, modern and natural attractions of Tokyo, Kyoto and other locations throughout Japan from a unique perspective.(3;01)
