Japan map: downsides
Japan is often crowded and overwhelming, there are dreary, endless suburbs of plasticoat walls and skies strung with a tangled spaghetti of overhead power cables, while concrete is winning the war over wood. Also Japanese is not an easy language to use, even simple requests. Still, local people are always polite and will help if they can understand and important signs are usually duplicated into English characters too.
