As a self-confessed foodie, I love trying new restaurants. But so often I hear of an amazing sounding place in passing, but never get exact details. Many times I have found myself in areas of Fukushima where I have been recommended some great restaurants, but if I don’t exactly remember the name or location then finding the place pretty much becomes a lost cause. I know some other Fukushima JETs feel the same way, so here is a new resource for you.
I have started to create a map specifically for Fukushima restaurants. You can access it here: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=201229629036176375949.0004bb3ec14f5bd582d25
At the moment, google maps on many smart phones don’t support saving custom maps, so bookmarking it to your favorites on your phone’s Internet browser is a good idea.
The Google earth app (free) also supports the My Maps feature, but it’s a little slow and clunky.
If you want to help build upon the map, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so I can invite you to collaborate, or just send me the address (or even just the name in Japanese) of the establishment you would like added to the map.
