Yahei Ueyama, 1800, Nikko Toshogu, Japan

This map cracks me up because it is so flat and 2-dimensional, and there are so many little red houses!

It’s interesting to compare this map from Japan with the other Western maps I had previously posted. The style of drawing, as well as perspective and spatial relations, are very different.
