If you enjoyed our fun link “World Heritage Site Shirakawa-gō (360°/Gigapixel),” then you’ll love today’s fun link: “Miyajima: The Wonders of Japan’s Island Shrine (360˚ Panorama)” on Nippon.com. Photographer Somese Naoto presents three views of Miyajima, an island off the coast of Hiroshima that is famous for the Itsukushima Shrine, maple leaves, and the floating torii in the Seto Inland Sea.

A gigapixel image is composed of one billion pixels, allowing the viewer to zoom in for incredible detail; since Somese’s photos are panoramic, you can see the area as if you were really there!
