Enjoy Playing With the Largest Photo of Tokyo Ever Taken

Using 8,000 photos taken from atop the Tokyo Tower, photographer Jeffrey Martin has assembled a 150-gigapixel panorama of the city. The best part - its interactive - meaning you can pan and zoom to an incredible level of detail.

"It took photographer Jeffrey Martin two days of shooting and four months of editing to create the interactive panorama you're about to experience," writes Robert T. Gonzalez. "At 600,000 pixels wide, it would measure 50 meters by 100 meters if printed at photographic resolution. And yes, it is every bit as awesome as it sounds."

"The founder of 360Cities.net, a website where photographers can upload 360-degree images of beautiful locations around the globe, Martin is no stranger to this medium. He's even created an image that's bigger than the one you see here, but this one, he says, is his favorite. It's a composite of more than 8,000 photos, shot over the course of two days from the roof of the Tokyo Tower's lower observatory. "
