A DVD from the Ambient Collection® - Filmed with high definition cameras.

Virtual Walks - Tokyo, the world-famous blade runner city, has it all - from a rich culture of the past to the ultra-modern buildings illuminated with flashy neon lighting. You can choose from three different walks on this DVD.

Walk 1 takes you past the breathtaking sight of Auqua City Odaiba. Here you’ll see spectacular views of the Tokyo skyline including jaw-dropping views of Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Tower.  While on this walk, you’ll pass futuristic malls with talking robots and see amazing mosaic-paved walkways.

Walk 2 takes you through a magnificent park set in the center of Tokyo, past The Imperial Palace, where their Majesties the Emperor and Empress reside. The palace is surrounded by a water-filled moat and tree-covered grounds. This is a precious taste of nature within the bustling metropolitan city and makes for a refreshing, yet cultural experience

Walk 3  Yoyogi Park is one of Tokyo’s largest city parks. Jog along wide pathways enhanced with cherry blossoms as well as forested lanes. You’ll feel a true sense of reality as you are joined by many joggers.

This DVD was filmed in glorious HD - each film is a triumph of ambient reality adding to the virtual sense of reality you will get every time you jump on the treadmill. You can also loop the films allowing you a longer workout.

REVIEW OF THE VIRTUAL WALKS - TOKYO JAPAN DVD

This walk takes you along mosaic paved walkways with excellent views of the Tokyo skyline,
Walk one – This walk takes you along mosaic paved walkways with excellent views of the Tokyo skyline. Most of the flowering trees are young and along the wide pathways are tulip filled beds. There aren’t many people in most of the areas – much less than I expected, but there are some harried looking business men cutting across in front of you and some meandering tourists. A few joggers go past you, and you hear the sound of their pounding footfalls coming up to you and then receding.
Walk two – This walk is along established grounds, again in the springtime, so everything looks fresh and new. The delicate tree limbs reach for the sky. It was fun to see all the people in the park and will make for interesting repeat views just to people watch and guess why they were in the park on that day. You dodge people in your path quite often. There are long sections where you are walking along side huge stone block walls and occasional sighting of some much newer architecture in the distance, which makes for an interesting juxtaposition.
Walk three- This walk is the shortest, and there are less people and a few more bicyclists. You get passed by some joggers and bicyclists and you pass walkers, so your pace is somewhere in between them. This is an established park for the most part too.

I enjoyed all three walks and look forward to doing them again. I liked the feeling of being in another country and as I said, the scenery and people watching opportunities will keep this fresh. The trailer showed a virtual walk in Singapore at night that also looks fantastic.

REVIEW OF THE VIRTUAL WALKS - TOKYO JAPAN DVD

Energetic yet Relaxing
This DVD came as something of a surprise. I have an image of Tokyo of people packed like sardines in subways. Since these walks are in an urban setting—and in one of the most crowded cities in the world—I expected a feeling of claustrophobia, as if I would have to make my way through masses of people.

I don’t know how the photographers did it, but there is hardly anybody “in your way” as you walk though the business district along Tokyo Bay (in Walk #1).. The architecture is beautiful and so different from what I see in Los Angeles. It’s like you are entering an enchanted—but nonetheless urban—city.

Walk # 2 takes you seamlessly to a breathtaking park in the middle of Tokyo. Here, too, there are very few people to get in your way, or to detract from the incredible scenery. The forest paths eventually turn into vast, paved expanses that look like the streets of Heaven. The scenery is exciting: high rise buildings juxtaposed with Buddhist temples.

Walk # 3 takes to another vast park in the city. Who knew there was so much space in Tokyo? Here you will see joggers like you, which will give you a boost of energy, in case you’re getting tired by now on your treadmill.

The pace in all three scenes is brisk enough for cycling, so this DVD is great for either the treadmill or the spin-bike. OR, if you just want to sit in your living room with a glass of wine and escape, this beautifully produced DVD will take you away.

REVIEW OF THE VIRTUAL WALKS - TOKYO JAPAN DVD

Top-notch virtual walks,
This DVD contains three virtual Tokyo walks, each about 20-30 minutes. The first is set in Aqua City and has features impressive views of the Tokyo skyline, the Rainbow Bridge, and the Tokyo Tower. The second takes us through a park in central Tokyo, past the Imperial Palace. The third is of Yoyogi Park, along a pathway enhanced by numerous cherry blossoms. The camera is constantly moving forward, giving us a sense of what it's actually like to go on these walks. Highly enjoyable and perfect for the treadmill.

I am a huge fan of these virtual walks by 'World Nature Video'. I kept hearing that you should walk 10,000 steps per day to encourage good health, but before finding these DVDs I didn't get anywhere near that number as I found it too boring. I just put on one of these virtual walks and off I go, then before I know it I reach the daily 10,000 steps and am ready to get on with my day feeling much healthier.

The description for the third walk says "jog along", but I kept to my standard fast walk and the speed was fine. I am sure the speed would be appropriate on all three walks for either jogging or walking.

After following the three different walks on the disc I feel like I really have been to Tokyo. I love the parks. There is little chance that I will visit Tokyo in person, so this is the next best thing!

I just received this DVD yesterday (bought through Amazon.com) for use with my stationary bike. Three very nice walks (rides) around Tokyo. Beautiful city! Surprisingly, there are not many people "in the way" of my ride. The quality of the video and image is superb, without any wobble or vibration. The ambient sounds are fine, although I prefer to play my own music, which helps me keep a constant pace and steady speed. I have several of Tony's Walk DVDs and I find the pace of the walks is perfectly okay for use with a stationary bike too (at moderate speed).

I already own the Virtual Walks DVD Tokyo at Night, so I looked forward to watching this DVD and I am very happy that I own this one. The first video takes you through the city, finally I can see the sights at daylight. Passing many impressive buildings, you also have a magnificent view on the skyline of Tokyo in this video. The other two videos lead you into nature. In the midst of the metropolis there are wonderful parks, where you can jog excellently. Many people are on the road, you can see wonderful vegetation, it makes a lot of fun to run through this parks. The background sounds ! are so realistic so that you have the feeling really to be there. Once again a wonderful Virtual Walks DVD with which exercising makes a lot more fun.
