Social Navigation

Supposedly, it's easier to just ask someone nearby where you are rather or how to get someplace than using mobile navigation applications - at least until the phone interfaces make this less cumbersome.

Whoever believes this has never asked a random passerby how to get to Ueno Park from Shinjuku in Tokyo. 'Sumimasen, Ueno doko desu ka?' only gets you so far.
