A Whirlwind Tour of Tokyo, Where Old and New Converge

Journey through Japan's capital with filmmaker Brandon Li as he explores the unique and sometimes jarring contrast between traditional and ultramodern. The A.D. Hope poem Tiger, read by Tom O'Bedlam, provides an alluring narration to the film's striking visuals.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society.
