Tokyo mapping resources

I use Google Maps for almost all my contemporary Tokyo mapping needs. Tip: for better search results, first find the place name in Japanese (via a Google search or Google Translate), then do your Google Maps search with the Japanese words. For historical mapping resources, I’ve included several resources below. (The University of Texas’s US Army maps from 1945 are an essential resource).
