Google back in December last year had released the 360-degree Street View imagery of Northeastern Japan that was affected by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

The 360-degree panoramas provide an easy-to-use way for people around the world to view the damage to the region by enabling a virtual walk through of the disaster zones.

Now, today, with four city governments in the Tōhoku, Google launched new imagery of 30 buildings that enables you to walk through the buildings and switch between floors to get a first-hand glimpse at the extent of the destruction caused by the earthquake and tsunami.

Google writes, they'll photograph more buildings "in two Iwate Prefecture cities, Ōfunato and Kamaishi, over the coming weeks." And, by the end of the year, it hope to complete the collection of imagery from five new cities in the Miyagi prefecture.
