Exploring Tokyo by foot is a must-do trip, but it can't match the experience of viewing the city in stop-motion tilt-shift photography. The streets become one huge playset.

Really just advertisement for Uniqlo—sort of Japan's Gap—you'll quickly forget any corporate affiliation as the virtual calendar layers the hypnotic music of Fantastic Plastic Machine behind the even more entrancing Tokyo imagery. Of course, little do you know, Uniqlo is abusing your mind's temporary complacency, planting commands to learn Japanese, visit Tokyo, consume shabu-shabu and then, maybe, buy a new shirt or two.
