I've seen maps of locations of several locations. One example of what I'm talking about is the small map on the right under the pictures at http://www.gethiroshima.com/en/Places/Restaurants/International/details?placeid=50269
I have no idea how to make one of these simple maps or how to make a more complicated one for that matter. I would use the google map but all of the listings for the area I'm doing are in Japanese and I need them to be in English. I've looked all over the web but I can't find any pre-made maps of my area in English so I figure I am going to have to make one myself. Does anyone know how to do such a thing?

Rather than concentrating on drawing maps, I'd recommend you spend some time getting to grips with a graphics application of your choice generally. Then, when you've built up a little knowledge of how it works you'll easily be able to apply the principles to maps or other things.

GIMP is a free graphics application.
