Memories for the future

            Memories for the future – A project undertaken by Google in the hope that it will help the people of Japan rediscover their lost memories of their homes and towns.

            On March 11, 2011 a devastating earthquake and tsunami hit northeastern Japan, causing unimaginable damage. Google has created a site called “Mirai e no kioku”, which means “Memories for the Future” in Japanese. This site showcases the pre- and post-disaster imagery in Google Street View.

            Check out the link http://www.miraikioku.com/streetview/en/about to know more about the project and also see the drastic changes in the before- and after-tsunami street view images.
