Google Maps has just released an updated that includes street views of Namie-machi. A town in the exclusion zone of the Fukushima disaster.

“Working with Google, we were able to drive Street View cars through Namie-machi to capture panoramic images of the abandoned city exactly as it stands today… so anyone from Namie or around the world can view it.”

Read about the project in Google’s Official Blog; it’s a surprisingly touching and emotional piece about how this disaster has impacted not only the people of Japan, but throughout the world.
