Did you follow the instruction?

Japan Map for Garmin GPS
This map currently covers the following area. Unfortunately there is no plan to create the other area in Japan now.

Attention: Please read the attached document, before you use this map.

Hi!
Run Mapsource, at the Menu tab go to View, switch to product, select Japan map.
Now go to find, find places, click the City tab, key in a major Japanese city (e.g Tokyo), then click the find button. If your map is installed properly you should be able to see something.
:peace:

Bro Mr.J, I had downloaded and install it in Mapsource. FYI my version still at 6.13.7

Initial screen shows a blank map, keep zooming in. It will appear.
