I lived in Tokyo for a while. I miss it. Please help me find films / TV / music videos shot in Tokyo so that I can indulge my nostalgia.

I'm particularly looking for things where the location is really important to the atmosphere, rather than ones where it's just a fairly anonymous background to the action. Also, I guess I should limit the question to things filmed in the last 10-20 years or so...
Other than that, very few restrictions. I was planning to ask specifically for music videos, having just rediscovered the video for the Killers' Read My Mind
- but then I realised that the film Lost in Translation
was a perfect example of what I'm looking for. I'm not ruling out anime either; and I don't mind whether it's a Japanese production or a western one, though English subtitles would be appreciated for anything in Japanese that has a plot. Finally, online is good, and available on region 2 DVD is also good.
