Cat Street View in the city of Onomichi!

Fancy strolling the streets of Japan as a cat? Now you can with a new online map-called cat street view-which allows tourists to explore the streets of the city Onomich, where 150,000 cats inhabitants, from the perspective of a feline.

“We decided to focus on cats because they know everything about the city, including the back streets,” a tourism spokesman said.

So far, the map just covers two streets, but they are going to expand its reach by using a camera attached to a stick that hovers 20 cm above the ground-a cat height-and able to see the city from a cat’s perspective.
