Thanks for the article, very interesting.

The map of Japan is actually only the Kyushu (the most southern of Japan’s main four islands). In the upper left there is a reference on Shimonoseki strait, which separate Kyushu from main insland, so probably he copied a Jesuit Kyushu island map thinking it represent the whole Japan.

Like what you read? Give Uberto Barbini a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
