"Ginza, Shinjuku, Yurakucho, and Bettara-Ichi Festival, Etc."

Another batch of video clips, starting with various train trips - Kanda to Yurakucho, Hibiya to Ginza, a Saitama countryside view from a moving train window, and various station views while changing trains, etc.  Then there are some views of a large new construction project near the south exit of Shinjuku Station (which is technically in Shibuya-ku).  Mixed in are Ginza, Yurakucho, Shinjuku, etc. street views, a view from a bus ride, a view of part of an interesting exhibition/installation at a Ginza art gallery (by Ohtani Noriyuki), an Okuno Building view, and then several clips from the 2011 Bettara-Ichi Festival in Tokyo - taken on October 19th.  The festival was interesting for me, as it has a long history (held every year on October 19th and 20th, regardless of the day of the week), but this year was the first time I personally experienced it.
