NO MORE GROUP INVITATIONS, please. If it is first time that you came across my gallery and if you have some time, please see my 5 '*24' tags: My best shots, My favorite Japan, My favorite Kyoto, My favorite night shots and My favorite Tokyo. These combinations are constantly updated. I'm a Japanese male working as a freelance in IT industry. Currently I'm working for several companies for Linux/Windows server management, supporting Windows/Mac clients and developing small software like management script for Google Apps and internal utility tools (mainly) written in Python. At home, I'm not using Windows nor Mac. I'm using Debian GNU/Linux (stable and/or testing). I like travel in Japan mainly by rail. I like specific regions like Kyushu, San-In, Kyoto, Nara and Hokuriku. Living in Tokyo near Shinjuku. As a hobby photographer, I take snapshot of ordinary Japanese life like streets, onsen (spa), small cities and so on. In Panoramio, I want to show variety scenes of Japanese life. So every page of my gallery is different.. My most viewed photo is a beautiful snapshot of Mount Fuji took from airplane (my profile picture), but that was an exception. I'm not that good. I was just lucky and that's only coincidence. Older photos without any comment might be deleted in some time. Currently I'm using Olympus E-P1/E-M5 (m4/3). Recent photos taken in RAW (.ORF) format and processed with Darktable, UFraw, Luminance HDR and GIMP (because I'm a linux user).

TAO Yuichi (taoy)'s conversations

Dear Friend MAJASA, Beautiful View, Excellent Shot,
Best Wishes From India,Kamalakar.
Thanks to all for your support . I was Shocked, disappointed a lot with Google decision on PANORAMIO ,Very very sad any how this is the time to say goodbye but Very hard to say Goodbye.....Time is running OUT...What to do...??

Thank you very much to all for your visits, warm and beautiful comments and for all feelings and emotions that we have shared between us so many years.

I am on Ipernity now.


The last petition.


É uma palavra portuguesa que expressa um sentimento, que expressa um estado de alma.

Há quem diga que foi inventada durante o tempo dos descobrimentos, pois era o que as famílias dos marinheiros sentiam quando eles partiam à descoberta dos novos mundos e ficavam anos e anos sem terem notícias suas...

E na verdade, ao longo de todos estes anos, nós aqui no Panoramio, começamos a sentir-nos como uma verdadeira família.

Infelizmente chegou a hora de vos dizer adeus, meus queridos amigos... :-(

Não me quero ir embora sem, pela última vez, vos dar mais um F & L e endereçar-vos desde aqui, da cidade do Porto em Portugal, um grande abraço já cheio de saudades,

Mário Eloi Castro

Perfecta, foto de gran belleza, Like + Fav.


Hola mi estimado amigo, lamentablemente esta hermosa aventura de Panoramio llega a su fin, este sueño que nos llevó por varios años a conocer y mostrar este hermoso planeta, sus gentes y sus costumbres se acaba. Agradezco de todo corazón el apoyo que me brindó, sus visitas y comentarios en mi galería. A partir noviembre del 2016 estaré subiendo mis fotos en: 500px

Desde Costa Rica, le estrecho la mano con la esperanza de encontrarnos nuevamente y compartir con usted, Melsen Felipe

Mi correo:


To all my Panofriends,

thank you so much for your many visits, comments and compliments!
I am on ipernity and sometimes on flickr

I hope to meet you again and wish you all best for the future, May

Amigo me siga no flickr para eu continuar admirando suas fotos

Very beautiful picture! L+F.*

Thank you for sharing many years , with everyone of us, so many feelings and emotions. I loved the whole community. How can you get in a small cell computer a whole world of memories and emotions which are contained in the conversation of each photo, where we were all as one and one was the all community ?

I am from November 2008 and I thought Panoramio will be eternal. My best regards to you, dear friend , you are one of my favorite photographers and I wish you all the best in world.


marvellous capture!
