Fun with Japanese Maps

The Japanese certainly like to have fun with their interactive maps. A couple of weeks ago the Kirin Brewery company released the Green Emoji Map, a map of Japan which consists entirely of user submitted emoji symbols.

Toyota have now got in on the act with their own fun interactive map of Japan. Their Wondermap provides details of great places to visit throughout the country. To emphasize how much fun you can have at each of these locations the venues are all shown on the map by hand drawn animated icons.

You can find out about each of the destinations by clicking on its animated marker on the map. The information includes a general description about the location and its address & telephone number. If you need a little more information about how to get to a destination a link to Google Maps is also provided for each of the mapped locations.
