Google Street View Heads Underground in Japan

February 16, 2012 / Japan, Asia

Google Street View, which provides 360-degree street-level imagery around the world, recently moved off the street.

Google sent one of their teams to record Japan’s Akiyoshi-do Cavern in it’s full 360-degree glory.

Located within Akiyoshi-dai Quasi-National Park, the 10 kilometer (6.2 miles) long Akiyoshi-do Cavern is the largest limestone cavern in the Orient.

Check out the amazing results.

If that’s not enough, the team also gave the same treatment to Japan’s old Okubo-mabu mine as well.

What an exciting way to experience caves, and other locations, a world away. While very few will likely be disappointed with the next stop, the Brazilian Amazon, lets hope more caves are in the queue.
