Google’s camera equipped cars are driving to new corners of the globe. After the US, and the Tour de France route, the new imagery added in Japan and Australia to Google Street View enabled in Google Maps, announced Google Maps blog. The Japan launch includes a number of major cities including Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, and Kobe, among others across the country.

Imagery for Australia includes extensive coverage throughout the country, featuring cities such as Sydney, Perth, and Melbourne - and many places in between.

Here's a slideshow of some images from around Australia:

In addition to Japan and Australia, Google announced — “we're also extending our coverage in the US with over 30 new cities including New Orleans (LA), Baton Rouge (LA), El Paso (TX), Wichita (KS), Savannah (GA), and Colorado Springs (CO). And to give you even more of a reason to explore Street View, we've hidden a special surprise somewhere in our US imagery so keep your eyes peeled as you take in the views!”
