Every label on this map is Japanese - so, either you need to be fascinated by the Japanese style, or you need to be able to read Japanese to understand this map.
There is a lot of detail on this map, including international shipping lanes and both national/transcontinental railway lines. Dotted around the edge of the map are the flags of most major nations in the world.
This map looks great at all sizes, but it looks even better when printed large. Please note that the writing on this map is very small at 18x24 inches. I would recommend going for at least the 36 inch 90cm) wide map.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 500cm (200 inches). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) version of this map.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown or country! Or even your favourite shipping route or country flag. Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain town or village is on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday, housewarming or Christmas gift for someone from Japan or who speaks Japanese, or perhaps someone interested in the merchant navy/shipping lanes of the early 1900s.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
