Route map

When you travel, you will absolutely need a public transport map! However, in Japan, i only ride my own route, too many things that are not seen, I carefully selected.

The number of stars is the recommendation level of the transportation. The more stars there are, the more trains there are and the easier it is to use. The maximum is five.
