Small map of Japan with the northern region depicted with a compact Honshu and faintly engraved coastlines, indicating the region yet unexplored. Korea is merged with the Asia continent, so that it does not even appear to be a peninsula.

Right side of map has been cut near the border and reattached, leaving a small area of loss (affecting the title & border of the title block). It is also re-margined at bottom with a different paper stock.
