Custom Street View Tutorial
Here is a good example of a custom Street View map of a Kyoto building which includes a custom overlay in the small map inset.
The map's developer has written up a nice tutorial, The Way of Creating Custom Street View, that provides a step-by-step guide to creating a map with custom Street Views. The tutorial includes instructions about taking and creating your own 360 degree panorama photographs, how to create tiles out of your panoramas, how to add your panoramas to a Google Map and how to create the arrow links that will allow users to navigate from one Street View to the next.
The tutorial also includes a number of example maps created by the developer. If you want to view more examples of custom Street Views in action check out the Google Maps Mania Custom Street View tag.
