"Ginza, Yurakucho, Shinjuku, and Late-Night Nakano Back-Streets"

Opening with train views from the Tozai and Ginza subway lines.  Then a brief view inside the Okuno Building, walking by the former 6th-floor lounge (danwashitsu) of the building (now used as a conference room by one of the 6th-floor offices).

Then Yurakucho, train scenes on the way to Shinjuku, Shinjuku scenes, followed by more train scenes on the way to Nakano and then late-night Nakano scenes - taken on back streets.  Finally, wrapping up with a reflective look inside a Chuo Line train.
