Amateur videos of Japan for vicarious travel

#1 Post by Bob_san » Wed Jan 30, 2008 3:13 pm

I've been looking for videos made by real people about Japan to have some vicarious travel. I found this set:

These were made by some people who teach English there and they made a video about Nova the teaching school that went bankrupt.

Arigatou, Bob-san.

Whoever commented, I gave you a thumbs-up 8) .
I'd rather be a gear in a big, deterministic, physical machine than just some random swerving.

Great minds think alike. I just came on here to post the same video.

It's got an almost LiT feel to it with the wistful music that is used.
