drill-down help
Example: you want to find an address in Takamiya, Fukuoka, Fukuoka-ken. example

You don't know the postcode so can't do a quick postcode search, and you have tried to search for "Takamiya" and couldn't find it.

Select "Drill down" from the menu on the front page.

Select "Fukuoka-ken".

You will be given a page of all the cities in Fukuoka ken. Scroll down to Fukuoka (-shi) and select it.

The next page is a list of local areas, (NOT -ku). There are too many to list, so choose the first letter/s. In this case. 'T' for Takamiya.

You will then be shown a list of areas starting with T. Scroll down to Takamiya select it.

You will now be shown the address so far. You can make changes by click the 'x' next to each element of the address.

Enter the chome and other numeric information. You should ONLY enter numbers (0 to 9), hyphens and spaces in this field. Hyphens can be a pain to enter so we treat spaces as hyphens.

Thus if your address is:
Apartment 303, Takamiya 4 chome 8-12

You would enter either 4 8 12 OR 4-8-12 in the field.

Do the search.

All being well, you will now have a link to a Google map with the address marked on it. Beneath that is the actual address, in two languages.

There are several useful options on the result page, you can read the help file here.
