I am using Android 4.0 and latest version of Google Maps. The interface is in English. When I search for direction to some place say Kyoto, the interface is in mixed English and Japanese. See the attached screenshot to understand what I mean.


How do see the destination names in English?


It's not possible to get it in English. You will always get the text as it is "locally". It's also a known annoyance.

Try installing Morelocale 2 and setting the locale to one of the English speaking countries or yet better define a new locale with language en and locale JP.
