One Sky, One Road Project Sees 80 Hour Drive Across Japan Recorded


Panasonic of Japan has managed to produce a full-length movie that depicts a 4,500-kilometer drive all the way from Cape Sata in Kagoshima Prefecture in the south to Cape Soya in Hokkaido in the north. What did they make use of in order to make this journey all the more memorable? By utilizing the highly functional driving camera that has been mounted on “Gorilla EYE,” which is a portable car navigation system in Japan that is extremely popular. This 80-hour journey has been dubbed “ONE SKY, ONE ROAD,” where it boasts of the trans-Japan drive for all and sundry to see.

The Gorilla EYE is very different from a conventional drive recorder, since it will work in tandem with the vehicle’s navigation system using a driving camera in order to deliver a new form of driving for fun as it takes note of the beautiful scenery around, in addition to chance encounters. For those of you who are unable to make your way to Japan anytime soon or in the near future, why not let the wonders of the Internet share the beauty of Japan with you?

You will be able to enjoy the 80-hour full playback movie on the website, where it will feature stopovers in places such as Nichinan Phoenix Road, Miyazaki Prefecture; Great Seto Bridge, Okayama Prefecture; Fujimi Boulevard, Shizuoka Prefecture; Shibuya Bunkamura Street, Tokyo; and sharply winding Iroha Slope road in Nikko, Tochigi Prefecture. Alternatively, there is a high speed digest movie that lasts for approximately 2 minutes for those who are in a rush as you can see below. [Press Release]
