A year and a half ago I blogged about a project that was underway to create an online VR recreation of Tokyo using 360 degree panoramic pictures of places all over the city. It seems that since that time there has been little or no updates to the project for a while. I have shot off an email to the site owners but have gotten no response so far.

Translate their blog for me!
The Tokyo VR blog is located here but my kindergarden level Japanese is still nowhere near being able to translate any of their posts. Could someone who reads this who understand Japanese translate their blog and let me know via a comment or through though my contact page what is happening with the project?
Some of the images such as this one in Asakusa even have recorded audio
Shibuya – I wonder how they managed to take this shot of one of the b
usinest places in Tokyo without an people in the photo
I really hope the project hasn’t been shelved. I will post an update if/when someone translate their blog for me.
