This Hyperlapse of Tokyo Will Make You Want to Go Travelling Right Now

Tokyo Hyperlapse Vimeo

Tokyo has been on my travel bucket list for a long time and after stumbling across filmmaker Christoph Gelep’s Hyperlapse video of his five day trip there, I might have to bump it up the list a few notches. It’s a stunning little insight into the concrete jungle that is Tokyo, from the neon nightlife, stunning cityscapes, crowded transit systems through to some of the more traditional aspects of Japanese culture. Get your credit card ready because you might not be able to resist booking a flight right away…

In his own words Gelep describes his motivation for the film…

This video was shot over a 5 day trip to Tokyo in January 2016. It was my first time visiting Japan, a place I had always wanted to see. With a population of 35 million, Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world. Due to this, I soon realised how lively and energetic this city really is. I decided to take my camera and explore this fascinating city so rich in culture, tradition and innovation.
