"Genre" of "service" "health". Again, different icons are set for Japanese banks.

"Outdoor" "Transportation" is like this. The mark of the hot spring is whether "respect the Japanese culture" or "make it easy for foreigners to understand"Opinions were dividedSometimes, it seems that previous icons are being used as it is on Google Maps.

Genre of "public service" "religion". Individual icons are set up in Japan post office, police, school, city hall, town / village office.

Genre such as "favorite" personally added and the road condition icon are like this. By subdividing the display, it seems that it becomes easier to use properly according to the purpose.
