The first set is from Kasuga, the neighborhood south of both Nishikata and Koishikawa, and is where Tokyo Dome City and the Bunkyo-ku Ward Office are.

There are lots of narrow, angled streets barely wide enough for a...

    a little help?

    Once a long, long time ago (before the crash) we had a thread here dedicated to a very large, very long pano shot from Mount Auburn Cemetery. It covered from roughly North Point to somewhere west of St. Elizabeth's and looked to have been taken sometime in spring of 2004. Would any of you...
