Search Navigator

If you want to find Japanese cartographical resources, it may useful to consult a «search navigator» - because they indicate what particular Japanese map types could be ‘hidden’ under the category of Japanese maps, e.g. ‘provincial maps’ (kuni ezu 国絵図).

That is, a «search navigator» provides hints on keywords to optimize your search.

You can also consult the site Timeline of Old Japanese Maps, where you will find our considerations on map types.
