Japan is Some Kind of Gorgeous in Amazing 4K Video

Consider this the Internet’s version of an hour-long massage or a nice long bubble bath, because you will truly be at peace after this vibrant and pristine video that shows the grace of Japan’s cherry blossoms.
Saha Entertainment (h/t Digg) took 4K technology to a very deserving portion of the planet, capturing soothing images that will have you begging to hop on a sci-fi transporter and beam to one of these locales.
We may not have 4K monitors, but the night sky pops with millions of dazzling stars while Mount Fuji comes onto the screen like a gentle giant here to placate the soul.
Once again we are reminded that it’s easier than ever to leave our everyday lives and visit far-off destinations.
Thanks to innovative technology, we nearly feel like we are there:
The Vimeo site does give us some hints as to where the images were filmed.
The first couple of images make use of Mount Fuji in the distance while the waterfall finale features the gorgeous Shiraito Falls.
Japan Guide has this to say of the location that sits at the foothills of Mt. Fuji: “Ranked among the most beautiful waterfalls in Japan, the 150-meter wide cascade is fed by the volcano's spring water and flows off the edge of a 20 meter high cliff in thin white streams that resemble hanging threads of silk — hence its name.”
Now if you are interested in those bursting cherry blossoms, you might like to visit the Japan National Tourism Organization’s page.
There is a handy map showing off all the places that you can find the blossoms, which attract tourist from, according to the site, late March to as late as early May.
Although, if you miss this year’s slate of wonderment, you have it above in the form of this gift, which is wrapped with a nice 4K bow.
