Summer’s zooming by. Wish you could teleport from your cubicle to a sandbar in turquoise waters? Well, there’s no Hyperloop yet—but thankfully, drone-shot 4K movies of Japanese paradise can make you feel like you’re there.

YouTube user egawauemon is known for beautiful, hi-def videos of scenes in Japan, and this latest one was shot by a drone in islands in Japan’s Kagoshima prefecture on the country’s southern tip.

Drones are giving cinematographers unprecedented new filming opportunities—there’s even a drone film festival in New York. Here at Gizmodo, we’ve extensively covered drones swooping through majestic landscapes and capturing unbelievable moments.

There’s even a website, Travel by Drone, that lets users upload jaw-dropping drone movies all over the world. Just make sure you don’t have any crazy neighbours who could put a BB on your UAV.
