Japan Street View – After the Earthquake

The Street View imagery in the areas of north-eastern Japan affected by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami have been updated by Google. More than 44,000 kilometers of the affected region now has new 360-degree panoramic imagery available through the Street View feature in Google Maps.

Google also released a website, called Build the Memory, where you can compare the before and after Street View images of the towns affected by those disasters.
