Unlike a conventional drive recorder, the "Gorilla EYE" combines the car navigation system with a driving camera to offer a new form of driving for fun by chronicling beautiful scenery and chance encounters. Panasonic has organized this public viewing event to share the joy of driving around the Japanese Archipelago with people in Japan and around the world.

The basic concept of this 80-hour movie is to present unadulterated scenes of Japan, which will host the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. "ONE SKY, ONE ROAD" is a part of Japan's "Wonders! by Panasonic" campaign.

Composition of the website: The viewer can enjoy the following four movies.

The 80-hour full playback movie, covering the route from Cape Sata in Kagoshima Prefecture to Cape Soya in Hokkaido with stopovers in places like Nichinan Phoenix Road, Miyazaki Prefecture; Great Seto Bridge, Okayama Prefecture; Fujimi Boulevard, Shizuoka Prefecture; Shibuya Bunkamura Street, Tokyo; and sharply winding Iroha Slope road in Nikko, Tochigi Prefecture.

Comments from members of the filming crew:

  • We filmed scenes over the 4,500 kilometers from Cape Sata in Kagoshima Prefecture to Cape Soya in Hokkaido in eight days. The 80-hour movie has been realized by a combination of the outstanding filming performance of the "Gorilla EYE," favorable weather and the physical strength of the crew members.
  • As Japan was hit by a severe cold spell during our tour, the filming crew had to cope with many unforeseen events like road closures and frozen roads due to heavy snow. At Cape Soya on the final day of our tour, we were blessed with a clear sky and were deeply moved when we saw Sakhalin Island across the sea.

Comments from members of the production staff:

  • We needed the unprecedented website technology capable of transmitting 80 hours of video continuously as well the technology for streaming transmission. We became the first to transmit 80 hours of video without a break as we fully utilized what we had gained from our past experiences.
