Five Maps of Tokyo / Edo


Edo 1844–48

snip
Mount Fuji last erupted in 1707, covering Tokyo in a layer of ash. A similar eruption today would be a major threat to the capital, as ash would likely paralyze transportation networks, leaving millions to make their way home on foot. This map, produced by the Cabinet Office’s disaster management team, is a composite based on prevailing winds in all seasons showing how much ash could fall. Tokyo (the pink section at upper right) looks set to get at least a few centimeters.

「変貌-江戸から帝都そして首都へ-」
平成15年10月4日~10月19日


平成15年は、江戸開府400年にあたり、関係各方面で多彩な記念事業が行われました。
本展示会では、慶応4年(1868)に江戸から名を改めた東京が「首都」として徐々に成長し、関東大震災や戦災による大打撃を乗り越え、戦後は「首都圏」を形成するほどまで発展を遂げた足跡を、写真・地図・図面などを含む当館の所蔵資料約70点によって、ふりかえりました。

Most old maps show the four directions (the compass rose):



But there are some where the North is missing



for example
Tōkaidō bunken ezu 東海道分間絵図 ('shinpan' 新版 editions from 1752 and 1772)
