"1991 Tokyo - Hibarigaoka Rain (July 1991)"

1991 - It was just before video camera manufacturers came out with stabilization technology, so there is some camera shake at telephoto lengths, but I tried to hold the camera steady and it's fairly stable at wider angles at least. I just figured out today how to pull a small bit out of a two-hour digital transfer from 8mm analog tape, so it's more haphazard than anything, but the rain seemed sort of interesting (to me anyway), so I grabbed that as a test. I'll try to find more interesting bits for the next video post....

The out-of-sight opening on the right of the frame that people are running to, is the side entrance to Hibarigaoka Station on the Ikebukuro Line in Tokyo.

The short clip is here:
