My wife and I are traveling to Japan and we need some help using the turn by turn directions.

It is my understanding that addresses in Japan are in a much different format than in the USA, and we are unable to input addresses into our Garmin Nuvi in Japanese format.

I was wondering if anyone knows how to enter an address in Japanese format into google maps for iOS. I prefer to use Google Maps, since Apple Maps has proven to be far inferior in Japan.

PS, we are buying an international SIM card with unlimited data, so we don't have to worry about the map images using a lot of data.

If this doesn't work, I'm going to resort to GPS points.
