"Tama-Monorail, Kichijoji, Ginza, Hibiya Line, Shibuya-Scramble, Shinjuku, Etc."

This batch of videos includes several clips showing the scenery on the Tama-Monorail as it goes from station to station.  They were taken a year ago, but the season is the same, so the scenery should be mostly the same now.  And then there are views taken in Ginza, Yurakucho, etc.  In Shibuya, I make a few runs through the famous Shibuya Scramble Crosswalk; in Harajuku I take some views near the station, and there are a number of scenes taken in Shinjuku.
