When Anime Meets Reality in Tokyo

One of the things that is pretty awesome about Japan is the fact that anime and video games are set in real world locations.  So you'll recognize famous places like Scramble Crossing in Shibuya, the Tokyo Tower, Ginza, or Tokyo Station, etc., in them.

 The same kind of effect happens with New York as it shows up in so many movies and TV shows.  When you visit these places for real you get a little extra thrill when you  can imagine everything crossing over.

Well, here are a few trailers that bring the two together for Tokyo, blending live footage with the imaginary.  Enjoy!  Oh yeah, one more thing, things like the Goku vs. Luffy display are temporary and often never show up again, so if you run across something like that in Tokyo - you're either living there or are blessed with good fortune.
