High above Tokyo

This panoramic was stitched together from 10 still pictures. (click picture to see a larger size)
Today was a pretty amazing day for filming and getting to understand the lives of experienced Japanese Christians from a women’s English Bible study. We began our day by going to a popular tourist attraction in the top of the Tokyo Metropolitan government tower. The top of the tower contained a couple panoramic views overlooking Tokyo as well as a cafĂ© and a gift shop. Even though we were told not to use tripods while we were there, another group of people came up with a professional tripod and video camera and began shooting.

Here is a screen grab from one of our videos. Even from 45 floors up, we could zoom in on workers taking a smoking break at the base of the middle dark building in the panoramic above.

The overlook was on the 45th floor of this Tokyo Metropolitan tower.
After we made sure we shot all we needed we grab some lunch at a local restaurant and filled up on large bowls of ramen. We later met up with Becky Zirkel and the women from her Bible study to interview them about what it is like to be a Christian in Japan. All the interviews went well and we even had the chance to talk to a 3rd generation Christian which is very hard to find in Japan. Hope you enjoy our pictures from today and there will be more tomorrow.
