New Japanese Street View Imagery

The Google Street View trike has been out and about in the Japanese city of Hiroshima. The new Street View imagery includes the Hiroshima Peace Memorial.

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and serves as a memorial to the people who were killed in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.

Google have also added Street View imagery of the impressive Itsukushima Shrine, both at low tide and at high tide.

Another new addition is, I think, the first Street View imagery of a baseball stadium on Google Maps.
