The largest photograph ever – an incredible 320 gigapixel shot of London – is now available to play about with online and we’ve spent an unreasonable amount of time comparing it with a similar interactive shot of Tokyo. Links after the jump.
Today’s dose of crazy Japan (WARNING: Graphic sexual images which you will almost certainly find disturbing)
Have a few minutes spare? Sit back and enjoy this Tokyo time lapse.
The new Twilight is out this weekend, meaning you’ll probably be forced to watch a movie about a sparkly 100 year old paedophile at some point, but here’s a few suggestions for the rest of your time.
The manager and nine employees of a bar in Kabukicho, Shinjuku have been arrested for robbing intoxicated customers, stealing an estimated total of one billion yen over the past six years and providing every hungover Tokyoite with a convenient scapegoat for their empty wallet.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been kept awake nights by the scintillating thought of scantily clad Amazonian robot women clambering for your flabby pink man-flesh. Tokyo Desu is happy to report that now this oddly specific fantasy can be made reality for the reasonable price of 3,000 yen.
We love seeing how Tokyo used to look. In this documentary footage aerial shots of the city are interspersed with scenes from the construction of Shinjuku Sumitomo Building, which stood as Tokyo’s tallest building for all of six months. Tokyo Tower casts a colossal figure on the skyline, a distant memory of it’s emasculated current state, buried amongst the surrounding skyscrapers, and people gape in wonder at Ginza subway station’s newly installed air conditioning.
