. . . did not know this atlas was available outside DOD Exchanges, but as Uji mentioned, it is the ONLY, remotely-English road guide to Japan.

The problem is, it only lists major roads because the resolution is too low. Still, it is better than nothing.

Japanese use the Mapple guides, but around 8 of them are needed to cover Japan in it's entirety, and at $45 a region, it's expensive.

The Road Atlas Japan is dead accurate regarding train stations and is highly recommended for those traveling off-the-beaten path. It lists 99.5% of all the train stations in Japan. It also shows geographical locations of a lot of major tourist attractions including temples and shrines.
