Movies filmed in tokyo 2005/1/21 06:50
Hello, I'm looking for movies that are filmed in and around the Tokyo area. "Lost in Translation" is a good one, it shows lots of Tokyo scenery. And "Dare mo shiranai" (Nobody Knows) looks like will be a good one too. Any suggestions for other movies filmed in Tokyo? I don't care whether they are english or Japanese, just as long as they are not so obscure that they wouldn't be available in north america.

I find this movie interesting because it is directed by a French director, Jean-Pierre Limosin. Japanese directors take much of the Japan scenery for granted and forget to show it; I like this movie because it shows a lot of Tokyo.

It's a bit dated, but what about "James Bond - You Only Live Twice"? Also, wasn't the more recent "Wasabi" with Jean Reno filmed in Tokyo?

There was this very good short film that aired on PBS about a month ago called ''DOKI DOKI'' (check your local public tv listings), the DVD can be purchased for $10.00 usd.


The movie is about 30min to 1hr long.
