Its very cool, but out of date. Some houses that have been there three years aren't there in the sat image.

I have captured photos from space of the house where I was born in Leominster Massachusetts and every house I have ever lived in since that time. One house had been razed but I got the neighborhood. Also got photos of churches, schools and several work places. I put them all in my family history files for our children.

Google covers Japan as well as the USA so I did the same for the places where I lived there and of travel spots visited.

Very interesting stuff.

For thousands of great photos of just about anywhere in the world, visit TrekEarth. It is a fantastic web site.
