"Ginza, Yurakucho, Shinjuku, Ginza 'Tokyo-1990' Exhibition"

This batch gets into the beginning of the "Tokyo-1990" Exhibition, so there are a number of clips of the Yurakucho-Ginza area, as well as a couple of clips from/of the exhibition itself, in Room-306 of the Okuno Building.  And - by request - there's a quick stroll through the first floor of the Yurakucho Bic Camera and a view of a Yamanote Line train coming into Yurakucho Station - not a sight to take for granted, since they have begun walling off the Yamanote Line platforms - good for safety and cheaper labor costs (they generally ax the conductors once they get all the platforms on a line walled in, like on the Marunouchi Line), but bad for speed and photography.

"Watching Yamanote Line Train Arrive at Yurakucho" (100609We-2159)

Standing on the elevated platform at Yurakucho Station - watching a Yamanote Line train come in.

The sounds of the train are not interfered with by announcements, loud talking, or other noises, so this is a good clip for listening to the sounds a Yamanote Line train makes as it pulls into a station.
