"Seibu Shinjuku Line, Nighttime Yurakucho, Trains, and Etc."

This batch of videos begins with a look at Chuo Park in Kodaira, and then gets into train and street views, with the Seibu-Haijima Line, the Seibu-Shinjuku Line, the Tozai (subway) Line, the Chuo Line, the Keihin-Tohoku Line, and the Yamanote Line.  The street views were mostly taken in Yurakucho.

"Kodaira Chuo Park Grove of Trees" (100802Mo-1257)

The side of Kodaira's Chuo Park with a grove of trees.  The government of Tokyo wants to build a four-lane road through this - and the residents of Kodaira City (within Tokyo) are fighting to stop it.  I hope they win.  There are too many roads in Tokyo already.
