From the Grand Canyon to Japan! The Street View Trekker has landed in Yakushima and is collecting 360-degree imagery of this breathtaking forest. Did you know that the Yakusugi Forest was a source of inspiration for the setting of Princess Mononoke? 

You'll soon be able to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site in Google Maps - stay tuned!

WOW. That looks like the best job ever ...

Sing me up!
 
I want that job!!!!

I have that film "princess mononoke", didn't know it originated from here. That's pretty neat. Cant wait to view the area.
 
good thing I bought this app when it was cheap ;) Thanks Google, you guys rock. 
 
What I'd do to be there! Pretty radd!
 
Great picture of the process in action!
 
I didn't know that... What was the source of inspiration for the big fat pig in the movie?
 
Collecting for the Matrix.
 
So this is why Google has the one if the highest job satisfactions out there. I wish I was the one with the heavy camera pack exploring all these areas.


 
yep +Norman Ma ...like they did in Prometheus where they sent the orbs to laser~map the alien~complex..
...google~earth sends humans to trek the vast wilderness!

 the 'matrix' will one day finalise collating and 'they'll' pass martial law giving them the assumed power to arbitrarily 'chip' us all....locking humanity into an existence of paranoia & control!
 
i saw them when they were in the grand canyon :)

+Francis Scardino  Is there a special Trekker app? or was it Google Maps that you bought, I thought they were free. It would be really cool if there was a Google Trekker app.
