A new 360-degree gigapixel panoramic photograph of Tokyo is the largest ever photo created of Tokyo and the second largest photo in the world. The latest in a series of landmark city gigapixel images from leading panorama photography firm 360Cities, the Tokyo panorama is 600,000 pixels wide. If printed at a normal resolution, this panoramic photo would be 100 meters long and 50 meters tall.
The image was shot by photographer and 360Cities founder Jeffrey Martin over a period of six hours from the roof of the lower observation deck of the Tokyo Tower. The panoramic image lets viewers zoom in from this vantage point – 20 stories up in the air – and see an astonishing degree of detail – from landmarks, houses and skyscrapers, to office buildings, with workers – the detail is unbelievable. In short, this is a remarkable and unique portrait of the amazing city of Tokyo.
