A Fun Open-Air Architectural Museum

A time trip to buildings from Edo, Meiji & Taisho Eras

I took a half-day trip in late autumn to Musashi-Koganei Park, a very beautiful and peaceful place. The Tamagawa Jousui (water purification system for Tokyo) runs through one side of this park. Some people were running, others cycling, playing, and walking their dogs. And you can also find a free museum inside, the "Edo Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum" Wow it's like a time-trip! Some buildings are from the Meiji Era (1868-1912), some from the Taisho Era (1912-1926), and even some are from the Edo Era (1603-1867)...A very rare experience, for sure.

Basically, I enjoy making short videos. I studied film making at The Persons Art School in New York a long, long time ago. At that time I used 16mm film with a Bolex movie camera. Film was not digitized yet. Nowadays I shoot & edit my videos with very basic equipments, like the Victor Everio and Nicon J1 camera with a basic lens, and also Movie Maker & i-Movie for editing....When I asked to a movie director "what kind of equipment do you recommend?" He said to me, "The making film is not depending on any equipment. It depend on what you want to make and what you want to say...that's the most important." Thinking about it, any wonderful movie is not using much effects staff, but these seems just using simple style. My video style is very simple. But I think "Simple Is Best and my Style"....
