What Japan Feels Like

Since I spent the summer I turned 18 in Japan on an exchange, I've often been asked to describe what it felt like to live in Japan, especially in Tokyo, a city where past and present collide on every street corner. I've shown my pictures, related my stories, but nothing ever seemed to come close to the texture of the experience.

Then, today, I came across the following video. Although the saturation of colors makes it seem hyper-real, this video is the closest I've ever seen at describing what Japan felt like when I lived there. Hope you enjoy.
