It may seem strange but Yahoo is indeed the best maps app in Japan. Yahoo (Japan) also makes the best transit app here.

People give Google Maps a lot of credit but I find it really hard to use as a means for keeping track of places I like, or for discovering new places. For example, if I want to label a custom pin, I have to grant Google some sweeping permissions to use my web and mobile activity data. I couldn't grant that permission if I wanted to, as it's turned off somewhere in the bowels of my G Suite domain management settings.
