Yahoo Japan Alps Data
On March 6th, 2011, Yahoo Japan released map data to OSMFJ. The data they released was originally held by the ALPS corporation which merged with Yahoo Japan.
The data we can use for OSM is only the ALPS data, and not any other data. OSM cannot use or import the map information at yahoo.com or yahoo.co.jp.
