"Several Views of 'Tokyo-1990' Exhibition/Installation, Etc."

Opening with a view at Kokubunji Station of a tokkyu special express train passing, then showing a walk under a rail bridge in Yurakucho.  After that, several walk around views of the 'Tokyo-1990' exhibition/installation - probably more than most people have an interest in viewing, but I wanted to show the atmosphere of the room.  And the last couple of clips are of an outgoing old orange 201-type Chuo Line train.

"Morning Sun on the Ginza Okuno Building" (100611Fr-1033)

The morning sun hits the Okuno Building.  Sitting among taller buildings, the sun only hits the building directly for two or three hours in the morning, and (briefly) via reflections from the windows of the building on the opposite side of the street in the afternoon.

"Old Chuo Line Night Train" (100611Fr-2254)

Riding an old 201-type orange Chuo Line train into Kokubunji.  As I'm looking outside from the inside of the train, the main clues it's an old type Chuo Line train (until the end of the clip, where I get off the train) are the noises it makes - principally (in this clip anyway) the air conditioning system.  Also there is an announcement by (gasp!) a real live human being, instead of the really horrible E-recordings they use on the new Chuo Line trains.
