Remembering the Japanese Earthquake
Google's Memory for the Future website was created to help the Japanese people share their photographs and videos and to rediscover lost memories of their homes and towns following the great earthquake of March 2011.
As well as user submitted photos and videos the site features Street View imagery taken before and after the earthquake and tsunami. This week the site was updated to include 36 new Street Views of buildings that were damaged by the quake.
Tokyo Metropolitan University's The Great East Japan Earthquake Archive has also been added to the map. The archive includes the personal testimonies of many Japanese citizens whose lives were effected by the March 2011 earthquake.
