If you find yourself in Tokyo or the Kansai region of Japan anytime soon, you might find this Google Maps mashup useful. It is a mashup of the bilingual food guide Bento.com that contains restaurant listings for these two areas of Japan. The maps lists all kinds of places: Beer bars, Brewpubs and Retail, Late-night spots, No-Smoking, Sake pubs and Retail, Take-out and bakeries, Sandwich shops and Delis, and Vegetarian locations within Tokyo and the Kansai area (Osaka, Kobe). Most map locations have photos and all have links to English language directions and reviews.
