Fun and memorable experience!
Me and my friend had such a fun experience doing a photoshoot in Asakusa with Aki-san and Naoto-san. They are very professional and they made it feel natural even though we are not used to being filmed.
The result is excellent and I will cherish this memory from Tokyo forever. I can highly recommend their services - both because it’s a fun thing to do but also because the film is such a treasure to have as a memory.

Well done
It was quite amazing experience for me to walk around Asakusa area in Kimono, Japanese traditional official wear, with my old friends, being taken in video film by highly skilled staff.
The video is excellent, as you can see on Sym Film’ site. They did great job !



Highly recommend this service
It was a very fun and special experience.
The videographer was fun, friendly and approachable and what is more very professional.

After seeing the video we are very happy and would like to go back and do it again with a whole family. We thought we knew Asakusa but after this experience we think we learned a lot.

Asakusa is our favorite place and after this experience, it has become our special place in Tokyo

It’s fun to share this video with our family in Hawaii and California. It is still fun to watch this video at home and makes us want to go back

Great and Amazing experience! I felt like a movie star! Thank you very much!
What an amazing, fun and great experience!

The film director, Akihito, is so experienced, friendly, kind, thoughtful and capable who provided me the outstanding video/photo shooting experience and services. He even assisted me to arrange traditional Japanese Rickshaw ride and assisted me to coordinate with Kimono store for Kimono rental services.

They provided me the outstanding services that beyond my expectations.During the video/photo shooting time, I felt myself like a movie star. I received the finished video/photos products soon after shooting, and I felt very satisfied. It was such an amazing and fun experience. I highly recommend Sym Film.

What you will obtain in future with travel video of Sym Film

1) Automatic Memories Reminder

There are 3 reasons why memories are left on video. First, the amount of information in videos overwhelms photos. Second, the video itself is a “well-organized album". So it's worth watching repeatedly. Third, the video has a strong story. And you are the hero/heroin of that story. Sym Film will resend your video with a "memories reminder email" on the anniversary one year so that you can look back on the memories automatically.

2) Timeless Video Message

We can insert your message to yourself and your loved ones in the end credits of the video. For example, "To my children 10 years from now". It's a timeless video message to your loved ones. Such a video is sure to be your "property".

3) Anyway Show Off to lots of people

The more times a video is viewed, the more valuable it is. Looking back on your own, not only that, but let a lot of people see it. And, not only on the Instagram, but at a house party or your child’s wedding. Or this year you may send the greeting card with video. I, myself, want to play videos at my funeral and have all the attendees see it

My story

Start from
my own experience
of travel videos

Hi, I’m Aki (Sym Film), a videographer.

I have a wife and an 11-year-old daughter, and we often go on family trips. My happiest moments are during family trips.
Up until five years ago, my family trip memories were printed and organized in albums. A few times a year, the time to look back at the album was so much fun that I couldn’t help but grin.

However, with the increasing number of opportunities to take photos with cameras and smartphones, the amount of photos has become enormous, and it has gradually become troublesome to organize albums. While unorganized photos pile up on my smartphone or computer, I couldn’t even look back on my memories.  Then, I started to feel like my memories of my family trip would “deteriorate”, and that was stressful for me.  When planning the next family trip, the situation continued that it was difficult to get excited.

But, one day, I found a way to solve this problem.

Now, instead of letting the memories of family trips “deteriorate”, we are able to leave them as precious ”property”.

The answer is travel video.

By myself, I started making videos using video editing software, and I was able to notice the great benefit of leaving memories not only as “photos” but also as “videos”.

For example, when I travelled with my family to the Isle of Skye, Scotland, there is a “voice of my daughter when she was young” in the video. It’s a sweet voice that we can’t hear now that she is about to become a teenager. Also, what I felt on that trip is recorded at the end of the video in the form of “a message to my daughter 10 years from now.” I would be happy if my grown-up daughter someday sees this video and touches how I (farther) felt at the time.

Even now, I sometimes look back at the footage of that trip. Each time, the atmosphere of the Isle of Skye is revived. At the end of the year when we travelled, we sent a greeting card to a friend and acquaintance with that video, and I remember that many people were surprised at the greeting card that was sent with the video. 

In summary, 
①The amount of information contained in videos overwhelms photographs

② The video itself is a “well-organized album”

③ The story of the video makes us want to watch it again and again

④The video becomes a letter that transcends time

⑤ And the video will be a reason for many people to see it

This are the reasons why we should leave memories in the form of “videos” instead of just “photos”.

You may think that video editing by yourself is difficult, but don’t worry.  

You can also leave your memories of Asakusa in a professional video shooting.

The video will definitely become your “property”.

And then,

・Would you like to keep your memories fresh forever with videos that you want to watch over and over again?

・Why don’t you leave a message about your feelings during the trip to your loved ones 10 years from now?

・Would you like to send it along with a greeting card or play it at a home party so that many people can see how sightseeing in Asakusa is going?

Sym Film shoots are limited to two groups each day. 

Please feel free to contact us even if the schedule is not decided.
