Metropolitan Government Building

Secret tourist spot...and for free!

By Yoshiko Toyama    - 1 min read

The two Metropolitan Government Buildings are just a short walk away from Shinjuku Station. The many high-rise buildings, which we can see from here, seem to be the same height but with totally different faces. You may be surprised at how huge Tokyo is. If the weather is clear, you can enjoy the Tama mountains and Mount Fuji. This is a great inexpensive tourist spot. And with its own little souvenir shop and cafe, too, on the 45th floor. Finally, be sure to visit the serene Kumano Shrine nestled in among the many Shinjuku buildings after you walk across Shinjuku Park.

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"....
