"Yamanashi Bus Trip, Shinjuku, Yamanote Cab View, and Ebisu Back Streets"

This batch begins with a few clips from a recent one-day bus trip I took to Yamanashi Prefecture (Club Tourism - "Mt. Fuji & Hot Springs").  Then there are night scenes looking through the front cab of a Yamanote Line train, and of Shinjuku Station and areas around Shinjuku.  After that are some views of Ebisu - including a back street view.
