Road maps

If you are looking for a good map of roads and highways in Japan, please check Google Maps (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=japan&sll=37.335224,139.130859&sspn=23.894497,39.506836&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Japan&z=5).

Railway

For railway maps, timetables and fares Yahoo Transit (http://transit.map.yahoo.co.jp/) is the way to go (if you don't read Japanese use your Google toolbar (http://www.google.com/toolbar/) to translate the page into English or any other language you want - a must for anyone who needs to check sites in foreign languages). This amazing tool will tell you exactly how long it takes between any two stations in Japan, how much it will cost you, and what time trains leave. Combined with Google Maps, transportation in Japan won't have any secret for you anymore !
