Notes

A map of Japan from Jean Migeon’s Nouvel Atlas Illustre Geographie Universelle’, with an inset of the Kuril Islands and a fine decorative vignette of Tokyo.

The map marks prefectures, cities and towns, undersea telegraph lines, and railway lines. The railway line is shown extending just beyond Fukushima and Sandai. The southern extension of the railway from Fukushima to Sandai, and Aomaori was begun in 1899.
