Natsukashii! – Beautiful Film Journey from Kyoto to Tokyo, through Nara

AmnesiArt is a film and Fine Art photography production composed by Nick Arcivos and Ryan Earl.

Love Japan?  This must-see short film gives you the opportunity to explore the country through Tokyo, symbol of modernity, Nara and Kyoto, the cultural capital.  Nick and Ryan to discovered the rich culture of Japan; its fascinating architecture and friendly people.

The idea behind this film was thought out in two steps; the first took place a few years ago, after discovering this beautiful country and the desire that gave them to capture the special atmosphere of Japan.  The second, more recently, is the shooting which included a two week journey from Kyoto to Tokyo, through Nara.

The film makers want people to discover the wonders offered by this country through its gastronomy, architecture and culture. They show the harmony of coexistence between tradition and modernity.  Although Japan is well-known for its technological advancement, it has retained much of its traditional appearance.
