Map of Japan

Map of Japan
 
 

Map of Japan taken from the Atlas van der Hagen, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague, Part 4.
This map of Japan and Korea was published in 1655 by Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) in the Atlas Sinensis. The striking thing about this map, rendered by the Italian missionary Martino Martini (1614-1661), is that the contours of Japan have been accurately represented while Korea is also shown correcty for the first time as a peninsula. This map constituted the prototype for all the charts of this region compiled in the 17th century.
