Gaihōzu Digital Archives (Tohoku University Library)
This digital archives contains a collection of Gaihōzu, maps of foreign countries ("outside of Japanese territory"), created by the Ministry of Land Survey between Meiji and the end of the WWII. Because these maps were created for military purposes and were confidential documents, many of them were destroyed or confiscated after the defeat.
