Thread: Recommended routes from Touring Mapple

  1. #1

    Default Recommended routes from Touring Mapple

    I usually drive with Google maps and look up the best routes in the Touring Mapple books. But I don't really like using the books so I started putting the recommended roads (purple roads in the books) of the 2015 Kanto and 2014 Chubu editions in Google maps. I also added the 1-2 day trips from the small booklets.

    Here is the link: Google maps

    PS: if you would like to help and add the purple roads from the other prefectures, please let me know.

    I finished adding all the recommended roads (purple roads) + access roads (light purple roads) + dirt tracks (pink roads) from the 2015 Kanto Mapple book.

    This is great. But all those purple roads are so far away from me . . . As I explore Aichi I'll try and remember to pass on information so you can add to it.

    I just added the purple roads in Aichi. I am slowly working through the Chubu Mapple book now.

    I finished adding all the purple roads in the Chubu Mapple book too. I never knew there was such a high density of great roads in the Kansai area.

    I'm planning to go to Hokkaido this summer so I have started to add the purple roads in Tohoku. I don't have much time now so I'm skipping all the side roads (light purple roads) and dirt tracks.

    It would be nice if others could help though...

    I notice this map extension for Google Maps went dark today. Any idea what happened?

    Cool, thanks.

    How did you make these types of maps. Very useful. I have the Mapples but dont speak Japanese well enough to use.
