Kyoto, Tokyo, Nara… Japan: Highlights Of Our Film (Part 5)

(The ones who already read the first part, part two, part three or part four of our blog post, can skip the description below and enjoy the latest still frames we picked.)

Because films are pictures in motion...

We wish to present some of the best moments, to the people who haven't got a chance to watch our film yet. For those who have, they would appreciate these unique instants, selected by AmnesiArt.

A first stay in Japan allowed us to discover its rich culture, its fascinating architecture and respectful people. After this deep experience, we built this project and finally made it possible thanks to a two weeks shooting between Kyoto, the cultural capital, and Tokyo, the symbol of modernity.

Through our vision, we wanted to share the special atmosphere offered by this country. We had in mind to recreate emotions we experienced, by capturing these genuine moments.

AmnesiArt comments these still frames from its film: “Japan: A Journey Between Tradition And Modernity”.
