The origins of cartography in Japan date back to the early 7th century when the country adopted Chinese writing and culture.
During the Edo period (1603-1868), Japanese cartography made significant progress. A notable development was the creation of "Edo zu", which depicted the city of Edo (now Tokyo) in great detail.
In the late 16th century, Japan witnessed the arrival of European explorers and traders, most notably the Portuguese and the Dutch.
European influence on Japanese cartography was not limited to technical aspects. European maps also introduced new subjects, such as the representation of flora, fauna and trade routes.
The legacy of the bond between Japanese cartographers and Europe can still be seen in contemporary mapping practices in Japan.
