About

Hello world. 

We are slow TV studio, a team creating diorama* with 3D print and model trains for relaxed videos. We are based in Tokyo, Japan.

*Diorama=A scene, often in miniature, reproduced in three dimensions by placing objects, figures etc.

 [What to create] 

We are going to create diorama of World's iconic scenery (specially in countryside) where trains run.
Reproduce the famous spots of train sightseeing, and create structures such as viaduct (bridge) in 3D print.

We will place 360 degree camera at the center of diorama so that you will be able to see all the beautiful scenery through 360 degree video. And also we will use the in-train camera so that you can enjoy the view from the train. 
Video will be open to all the people through internet.

So we will start Facebook & YouTube channel. We think having this Kickstarter project is great timing for us to start SNS to get people know about our creation and to communicate with fans of diorama, 3D print and model train from all over the world.

Watching video of great scenery with train running with the sound of them is just breathtaking and relaxing. That's exactly what we want to offer.

 [3 candidates of diorama scenery] 

We will create one diorama from these three candidates below. Let us hear your comments about preference of which one to make!

●No.1 
Hakone Tozan Railway(箱根登山鉄道)

Hakone Tozan Tetsudo (c)
Hakone Tozan Tetsudo (c)

Hakone is famous Onsen(hot spring) town, located south of Tokyo, takes about an hour by shinkansen and express from Tokyo Station.
Hakone Tozan Railway is great to visit in June, the rainy season in Japan when "hydrangea" are all blooming in blue, pink, and purple. It's also great to visit for Autumn leaves with red and yellow in November.
This railway is famous for climbing mountains, so there are "zig zag" points known as "switchback".

Model train: Made by Tomy Company, Ltd

[Why to create] 

Because we love creation of diorama.
We want to introduce beautiful scenery to the people who don’t know it.
We want to introduce it to the people who even know it for their memories.
Creating diorama with 3D print and model train is the our way of introducing.

You will be able to enjoy the video clip from Youtube channel by watching diorama and listening to the sounds of trains running. We think it will be great for relaxation, can be called as "Slow TV".

It will be a great lift up for us if you support our project, because we would like to continue creating.
If you have any questions, please leave the comments! Thank you all.
