Tokyo Travel: One Week In Toyko, By Lukas Backland (VIDEO)

Tokyo gets its close up in Vimeo user Lukas Backland's film shot during a week-long vacation to the Japanese capital.

The city's metro, which gets mixed reviews from the Associated Press, is well-documented in the short film, as are some of the city's famous sites. You can also see the newly-opened Tokyo Sky Tree in the distance.

But, it's the people who get the most love. Buckland filmed the city's famously crowded streets, interiors of casinos, parks and the buildings to highlight several aspects of the city.

Consider it an introductory guide to one of the world's great metropolises.
