"Chuo Line Telephoto Cab Views, Ginza Art Exhibitions, Etc."

Something a little different than usual in this one - several telephoto views through the front cab of an inbound Chuo Line train. It's a different view with different details than the wider angle I usually use. And then there are views of Ginza and Yurakucho, including a few views of a Ginza art exhibition. (Regarding the videos with "LV-HD" - that stands for "Long-View, High-Definition".)

Construction Site in Ginza 1-Chome by Chuo Dori 120424

About this construction site (above video) - this is a little depressing actually. Ginza was traditionally composed of a large number of small shops, but what they keep doing is knocking down about ten of them at a time and then putting up one large sealed-box recirculating-air structure in their place that looks (sort of) okay from the outside, but is stuffy inside, and uncomfortable even to just walk past, since they generally have overpriced "brand" junk for sale - with stern-faced guards in expensive suits guarding the doors and looking sternly out on the street. What this does is transform a friendly street that is comfortable and fun to walk down into an uncomfortable zone where you feel like you practically need a special security pass to walk - on a public street - past these hideous new boxes. Progress? No. This is regression.
