In Korea, Google Maps is limited in its functionality (due to protective legislation, I believe), and therefore, isn't very useful for non-drivers. For instance, it will not plot a walking route. You pretty much have to use the map apps from Naver or Daum/Kakao, both of which require knowledge of Korean, but are very detailed, even to the point of calculating taxi and bus fares for the possible routes.
Is Google Maps good enough for tourist* use in Japan? Or is there another commonly used map app?
*Tourists who cannot understand/use Japanese, who will be walking and using public transportation, who will not be driving, who might use taxis.
