This small map of Japan is based upon the Blaeu/Martini model. Hokkaido is shown as being a part of the main continent, labeled Land of Jesso. To its east is the Strait of Vries which depicts a small channel between Asia and North America. Korea is properly shown as a peninsula. Third state of the map marked page 41 in upper left corner.
