Comment from the Person in Charge

This video was produced to show the fascinating and innovative design of the lab space within Shimadzu Tokyo Innovation Plaza to a broader audience. The small drone used for filming was operated by a former drone racer!

The video clearly conveys the atmosphere of the hall, lounge, labs, and exhibition space, including the large atrium and globe (sphere) that are the hallmarks of the facility.

The no-cut view of each lab from the 3rd floor to the 1st floor is impressive.

Other key points include
• The scene from the 1F staircase landing to the atrium (around 0:25)
• The spacious, open atmosphere of the Lounge from the Main Hall (around 1:10)
• The scene where the drone passes between the pillars of the Autograph (around 02:28)
