Map of Japan. Japan from a Korean atlas. This map is from an atlas titled 'Yojido' that dates from the 1760s. Such maps were produced after contact had been made with European geographers, but the designs were based on Asian traditions. Korean maps often used Chinese characters. Here, the two symbols representing Japan (Il-bon) are in the top right corner.
