The appearance of Roman text on some of the Google Maps based websites?
Bikely etc are now showing station names, towns etc in Roman script. Useful for non Nihongo speakers.

Noticed it last week. Seems they have "romaji" for trainstations, cities, etc... Nice to know the names of some of the towns we cruise thru or bail out train station names.
I noticed that google started putting it on their maps since I moved here in September, but DiddleFinger has had it the entire time. It's a very useful sight if you're an English speaker in Tokyo. I'm not sure how good the coverage is for the rest of Japan.
