"Tobu-Tojo Line, Ginza, Nihonbashi Side Streets, Kanda, Etc."

This batch of video clips begins with views on the Tobu-Tojo Line, followed by views on the Seibu, Tozai, and Ginza lines. Then there are street views of Ginza, a walk in an underground shopping mall in Nihonbashi, and views of side streets in Nihonbashi. After that I walk around in Yurakucho and Ginza, and ride the Chuo Line. There are also a couple of art exhibition views, and a 1990 look at the morning rush in Ikebukuro. Wrapping up this batch are a couple of views of the Kanda Station area (under construction) and a few other odds and ends.
