But when more and more art, culture and tradition elements begin to vanish and the colors of Tokyo are fading, Takeru suggests that Honey should try and experience living in Tokyo first.

An interesting approach on tourism marketing - an anime with a real story!

Not too deep and with simple characters but interesting enough for anime fans to have a look; not as strong as Ai Yori Aoshi ~Enishi~ Miyuki but at least with a bit of a message. Downgrade for Art due to the mix of real-movie footage with animation.
