Have you ever wondered what the world looks like from the point of view of a dog? Google is helping people see one city in a whole new light by putting the camera on the back of an Akita.

Google Japan took a new Street View perspective for the city of Odate. In ‘Dog View,’ two Akitas, named Ako and Asuka, take a tour through town with 360-degree cameras on their backs for the world to see. Odate is the birthplace of the Akita breed, and they have an Akita dog museum, the “Old Dog” shrine and even a bronze statue of Hachiko, an Akita honored for continuing to wait for his owner at the train station nine years after he died. This campaign is a smart way to show off the city, especially for dog lovers, and bring in more tourists looking to explore a dog-friendly city.
