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.

We have a similar thing for letterboxes perth where you can view all state post boxes where you can post letters within Perth Western australia. Its good when you are on the way home and save having to go out of the way to send your mail, you can pick it up on your phone and find the nearest letter box.
