Twist and turn. Reflect. Go upside down and merge it all together in a videographic collage…the result is the latest hit from YouTuber darwinfish105. Once again, he’s delivered a basically unnotwatchable love letter to the metropolis.

The Lovechild of Blade Runner and Inception

We’ve all marveled (some drool) at the incredible cityscapes of the world’s largest city, our home: Tokyo.

The contiguous urbanization, beginning at Tokyo Bay, crawls westward and disappears beneath the sky, farther than we can see – not only by distance, but also due to the basic curvature of the earth. It’s just that vast.

Okay, now double that. Twist and turn. Reflect. Go upside down and merge it all together in a videographic collage…the result is the latest hit from YouTuber darwinfish105. Once again, he’s delivered a basically unnotwatchable love letter to the metropolis. Do watch.

Mirrored TOKYO is not his only hit, there’s great time-lapse video work:

And his still photography of giant robots is quite fine, too:

“Is it really all that?
Does it really look so amazing in person?
These Japanophiles are exaggerating, yeah?”

Yes.
Yes.
Gigantic nope.

Here are a few caps, too:
