This video, shot and made by Scott Gold, plays like a dream. It depicts Scott and his wife's trip to Japan in January but to me, it shows how Japan is maintaining its illustrious history and mystical culture amidst the fast paced, beep beep, every person cross the intersection right now modern world.

You'll see Sumo matches, onsens, master chefs, food that looks unreal, monkeys, brilliant architecture and more against skyscrapers, bullet trains and city lights. What a beautiful balance. What a beautiful place.
