10 Japanese websites with beautiful video



A video tells more than a thousand words. With HTML5 / embedded video as feature content or as a background effect there is no need to rely only on still images and text to tell your story. In Japan the use of video in web design has become popular and in 2015 the trend will continue to gain pace. Here are some of my best picks for websites from Japan that you may not have seen, all of them share a creative implementation with high quality video production and website art direction.
