Google Street View + Caves = Google Cave View?

I’m a big fan of all things related to Google and mapping. Google Earth, Google Street View, and even Google Train View (?!). What Google Japan has begun to do is take long exposures of several popular caves in Japan and provide us with 360 degree shots of this impressive natural and man-made caves (via Crave).

Click on this link to explore (or go splunking as they say) the Okubo-mabu mineshaft, or click this next link to see the Akiyoshi-do limestone cavern. Both are very impressive. Japan already has a rock concert at a ski resort on Mt. Fuji – time to move it underground.

Check out the embedded map below to scroll around one of the caves.
