Japan online maps
From assela Pathirana
- mapfan.com is arguably the best resource for maintaining a library of spots and planning journeys (in Japanese). Can be used without registration. But free registration allows the string of locations. This makes the route planning a breeze!
- For using expressways (toll-roads) hi-navi is better than mapfan. No step by step guide with maps, but much easier to use together with a map of expressways. (in Japanese)
- English: Perhaps google earth is a good resource.
