Amazing panoramas of Tokyo

Talk about a site that's perfect for a green tea break.

The Washington Post has a collection of self-rotating 360-degree panoramas of famous spots in Tokyo.

When you click on one of the thumbnails, the full-size panorama may take a moment to load, but it's well worth the wait. There's even a full-screen mode, which really makes you feel like you're there in person taking in the sights.

Once it loads, the image begins moving to the side automatically, so you can sit back with your cup of green tea, relax and enjoy the show.
