Up to the Sky in Osaka

Yoko filmed this at Umeda Sky building (梅田スカイビル, Umeda Sukai Biru) in Osaka. The building was designed by Hiroshi Hara. He designed Kyoto Station too.

It's gorgeous, and, more than that, I think, for Yoko it's a daring new way of exploring the world. I am thinking now at all her gorgeous videos in the world of parks and shrines, or in the world of Japanese traditional commercial neighborhoods, here is different. And I'm thinking at Hou Hsiao-Hsien and his Millennium Mambo, with its debut scene that takes place in a tunnel that is somehow like the one explored by Yoko here.
