A scenic drive through Tokyo

Posted by Dean on October 8th, 2011. Filters:

Something that’s always impressed me about Tokyo besides it’s beautiful lights, is it’s roads. No matter how old they’re, there is always a fresh coat of paint on gleaming black tarmac.

As I always travel by train in Tokyo, I’ve never personally driven a vehicle in Japan but I’ve been lucky enough to hitch a ride on the back of a friends scooter while racing through Odaiba. I love going for a drive on the coast here in Ireland. As you can imagine the scene is completely different in Tokyo.

I found this amazing video of a scenic drive through Tokyo, shot in 1080p. I may never get the chance to actually drive on those roads but this sure does give me that ‘awe’ feeling. The journey begins in Yokohama and ends in Odaiba. You can see most of Tokyo’s famous landmarks throughout the video.

Make sure to check out the rest of the videos on cat2525jp‘s YouTube channel as there’re lots of scenic videos of Tokyo.

    I love driving and I now love this video.  Thanks!

    Now I want to play some Wangan in the arcade.  Actually, scratch that.  Now I want to go drive in Tokyo!

      Glad you enjoyed it! I say we all meet up in Tokyo and rent a car. We can just loop the freeway :-D

    I actually saw this video for the first time just a week or so ago, and I must say, it’s just wonderful.  Things like this make me miss Japan even more then I already do.  But yeah, great video, thanks for sharing!

      I feel exactly the same. These kind of videos hit you a lot harder when you’ve actually experienced Tokyo yourself. 

      Your welcome :-)
