Tilt Shift Video: Darkened Streets of Tokyo

Mesmerizing tilt-shift video showing before and after shots of Tokyo at night. Before the earthquake with every single building and street lit up like Christmas. After the quake, the streets and buildings are darker to conserve energy.

I was talking to a colleague who has their headquarters in Japan about all this and he thinks the earthquake will change the work/life balance of the Japanese forever. To save energy, the salaryman is forced to go home early. He is free from obligation to stay later than everyone else. As a result, he goes home and spends more time with his family. This trend will continue perhaps permanently. What do you think?
