Map and Printing

Printing Museum
Finished
Maps are indispensable in daily life. Since ancient times, maps have been created as a form of expression to convey geographic information. Printed maps first appeared in Japan in the early modern period. The expansion of private printing and publishing led to the creation of various maps and geographies. Eventually, with the development of Dutch studies, Western cartographic knowledge was absorbed and the world expanded. In the late modern period, Ino Tadataka opened the door to modern cartography, which had a great impact.
