This could be another one of those “been there, done that” stories, where frenzied travelers (or travel bloggers) flee at full speed just to meet their self-imposed deadlines. But, seriously, that’s not what travel should be about. You likely flew for ten or more hours to get there, so why rush it? Especially if we’re talking about Japan. Well, some won’t be convinced by our plaintive plea to slow down and enjoy the cherry blossoms. So, for you, enjoy the film below (courtesy of National Geographic) and we hope you get your fill. Memories of a three-week railway journey through Japan developed into a fascinating short film.
Filmmakers Vincent Urban, Alex Schiller, and Alex Tank zoomed through Tokyo, Osaka, Hiroshima, and Kyoto and experienced a culture that somehow balances rich tradition with a very futuristic present. Follow Vincent Urban on Facebook here.
