Japanese Map of Japan: What does a map of Japan, made in Japan reveal about Japan? This map from around 1690 shows a close up of the same land mass found on most of the other maps in the collection, except unlike some of them it lacks longitude and latitude lines and instead of using roman letters uses presumably a Japanese writing system. Only the writing isn’t Japanese. I distinctly recognize Chinese characters on the map. While my knowledge of Chinese characters is little to say the least and I have no knowledge of Japanese writing, I do recognize the characters for East, West, North, South, and in front among others, leading me to believe this Japanese made map is at least partially written in Chinese rather than being written completely in Japanese. Why? Also, the character for north is on one side of the page, south on the opposite side, east on another side and west on another—but the character for west is emphasized, drawn differently. Lastly, the map is drawn from west to east rather than north to south. What does all this reveal? I think these details—the Chinese characters, the emphasis of the character for West, and how the map reads west to east—reveal that Japan and its culture were influenced by and connected to its western neighbors. This map was mostly likely originally made for navigation purposes. It has mountains drawn and other orthographic features drawn on it. It is folded in many places suggesting it was used to navigate. It has Volvos, paper circles that turn and are used to depict solar and lunar calendars for the purpose of understanding tides. It was made in Japan, used by Japanese but is written with at least some Chinese characters. So why are the details of a Japanese made and used map written with Chinese characters? One of the guides at the museum told me that Japan used the Chinese writing system before developing their own writing system. So Japan had a connection to China and was influenced by China, probably adopting more than just a writing system. I don’t know why but I always thought Japan historically was isolated. Clearly, I was wrong. Thus the Chinese characters on the map reveal Japan’s association with China. Next, the character for West is most likely emphasized because China and/or India are located to its west. They’d emphasize the west because India was the center of the Buddhist world and the Japanese practiced Buddhism. Also, China was clearly important to Japan, Japan must have traded with China, not to mentioning adopting certain aspects of Chinese culture. The fact that Western Asia was so important to Japan, important enough at least to be emphasized on a Japanese map of Japan, is probably why the map is drawn west to east rather than north to south. The map was for navigational purposes and Japan traded with the West so when making a map it seems logical that it would be drawn west to east, since that was the direction of trade. The details on this Japanese map suggest a strong relationship with Western Asia. This map through its emphasis of West for me redefines West. When I think West I think the Old West of America. In a broader sense I include America and part of Europe. But West depends on perspective. Because, for Japan West equals China and East equals America at least technically. But we’ve elevated “west” and “east” to classes of two different words with supposedly different cultures. What’s most interesting about this map, is that it reveals that in 1690 Japan thought of other parts of Asia as “west” but incorporated Chinese and Indian culture into its culture.
Metra map, spring 1995
Metra map, spring 1995
I'm hardly an expert on Metra and Chicagoland rails, but I can spot quite a few things different from a current map, and marked the most obvious differences. I picked up a bunch of old Metra brochures (1989-2001) for free today and I'm having fun going through them--more scans to follow! Ha, it refers to "quaint, historic suburbs"--I keep telling people I'm running around on Metra to visit lots of "quaint historic downtowns," though the train stuff now interests me nearly as much...
