The virtual reality world of Second Life is full of clubs, bars, beaches and bedrooms in which people interact in all manner of virtual ways and even positions, but there is more to Second Life than its “in your face” seedy side. I decided to go searching for some of Japan’s famous landmarks to see if they had been recreated in the 3D world.
Here are a few pictures of real places in Japan alongside screenshots of their recreations in Second Life. To make things fun, I won’t tell you what they are. Instead, you can leave your guesses in the comments and I’ll tell you how close you are! Even if you don’t know all three of them, leave a comment! I’ll be impressed if anyone gets the first one!
