"Takadanobaba Shamisen, Tozai Line, Ginza, Nihonbashi and Yurakucho"

This set of clips begins with a view of a man playing the shamisen under a rail bridge in Takadanobaba.  Next is a clip of walking down the 1932 Okuno Building staircase (the other staircase in the building is from 1934), going from the seventh floor to the first floor.  Following those, there are views from the Tozai, Ginza, and Marunouchi Lines, as well as views of Ginza, Nihonbashi, and Yurakucho.
