Review:

I have been using UUD Japan Map v2 with Topo for almost 4 years now.
Without that map, I would have been totally lost in Japan. It has taken me
a while to fit in here in Japan, learn the language and learn Kanji.
However, this Japan Map has made it possible for someone with no knowledge
of the Japanese language at the time to navigate around Japan as if he has
been living here his whole life. Without this map, I would have not been
able to purchase a motorcycle so soon, I don't need to plan out directions,
I don't need to worry about getting lost, this map has saved me so much time
and energy that I shutter to think what life would have been like without
it. Honestly, I can absolutely say that something as simple as this map has
drastically improved the quality of life here in Japan for me. For example,
I climbed Mt. Tsuba with my friend earlier this year, we were able to
navigate and bypass all of the toll roads and just took local roads all the
way there saving us money, and once at the mountain I used the Topography to
give us a precise location at all times. I traced our route with my device
and took many pictures of the surrounding areas, and because I used the
trace route function on my device, I knew exactly where I took the photos
and can visit them at a later time to re-kindle old memories, or show people
exactly where on the map that these pictures were taken. I use this map
every day, and the more Kanji I learn the more that I can begin to rely on
my car's built in Navi system. I think what the most important thing that
this map has given to me, is time, it allows me to gracefully make the
transition from English life to Japanese life with no hiccups in between.
In my whole life, this is my best purchase. On a scale of 1-10 of important
things to get when visiting or living in Japan, this is a 15. I cannot
stress how important and necessary this map has been, and continues to be,
to myself. I just discovered that V3 of this map has become available with
updated roads, places, and even now has local shops and stores. I bought it
without hesitation, I highly recommend this product, I highly recommend the
getting the topography as well, having the topo version is great when
sightseeing. Also, the people at Up Up Down are very kind and friendly if
you have any issues during installation. -Joe Young
