Panorama photos of Tokyo
I’ve seen lots of panorama photos before and I’ve taken a few of my own while in Japan (and other places that I’ve been to around the world). Most of them have been taken with a smartphone that gives you a simple way of catching your very own panorama view of whats in front of you. But I’ve never ever taken a gigapixel panorama photo and I doubt I ever will, because you need to own some very expensive camera equipment. Thats what’s great with 360cities, they’ve done the hard work for us viewers. Taking the photo is just the beginning of taking a 360° panoramal. It’s also all the work in front of the computer that probably takes a lot of time.
The company behind these very popular gigapixel photos is 360cities.net. There have take lots of gigapixel photos in different places around the world, but the two I would like to share with you are both taken in Tokyo.
The first panorama was taken from on top of the Tokyo Tower. The photo was taken in September of 2012 and it gives you a great 360° panorama photo from the top of the tower all over the city.

Roppongi Hills Mori Tower
The second panorama is also a 360° photo and it was taken from Roppongi Hills Mori Tower. It was also shot in September of 2012 and it also gives you a great view of Tokyo from high up.

Both of the panorama photos give you a high quality picture, so high that you can see people going about their normal day to day life on the streets. It’s fun to scan the photos for intressting things going on around in Tokyo on the day(s) of the photos.
