“Dog View” from Akita-ken, home of Japan’s adorable Akita dogs

Akita dogs are big, fluffy and incredibly loyal and come from Akita prefecture in the snowy north of Japan. Today, Street View can take you there in an instant.

Odate city wanted to give visitors a snapshot of the local area and, since Akita dogs are such an important part of the city’s history and culture, they called on the help of a hardy pair of working Akita dogs — Ako and Asuka — to give their own unique perspective of a dog’s life in Akita by strapping a small camera to a dog-friendly harness on their backs.

You can enjoy the beautiful landscape of Akita through the eyes of dogs in Street View.

Currently Google is renting a 360 camera that anyone can easily shoot.
