Japanese Post Boxes on Google Maps
Post Map is a Japanese website that is busy mapping the locations of post boxes and covering such issues as post office closures and the privatisation of postal services.
The site uses Google Maps to provide a crowd-sourced map of post box locations. Users can submit locations and photographs to the map and use the map to find their nearest post boxes. If you select a post box then the map sidebar shows you how far it is to the nearest alternative post boxes.
