wataya: (Tokyo mon amour)
But I'm outrageously happy of this little victory over nothing : I managed to have some of my pictures taken in Japan published in Google Maps !
Being published in Google Earth is super easy, the easiest way being to use Paronamio, which I did. Every picture that follows the rules is published in Google Earth. Which makes billions of pictures. That's not super interesting.
For Google Maps, they make a selection, and as most monuments are already covered by a bazillions of pictures of every tourist-wanabe-reporter, it's kind of complicated to get selected now. So I chose 4 rather unknown sites in Tokyo, and the formidable thing is that they uses most of my pictures !!! (Ok, I'm sure they are operating a turn-over of pictures, so that everyone has a chance one day, but still : obscure sites, few tourists, few pictures ! I may be the only tourist there in months. I definitely was the only occidental one in the district at the time I went. So my picture may be the nearly only reference. Yes, I told you, I'm being wonderfully immature !)

Massages the ego nicely, doesn't it! ;) Well done.

Hope the trip is worth it. Good to see you went anyway, despite recent upheavals seeming to put lots of folk off. I really think we need to be telling Japan we care by going and spending our tourist £/$ when we can.
