A hand drawn map that appears in a manuscript that accounts the experience of four Japanese fishermen who got lost on their way to Edo in 1793. After drifting for six months they made landfall on one of the Aleutian Islands, where they were found by Russians who took them to Irtutsk where they spent nine years. Eventually they were called to St. Petersburg. There they joined the first Russian round-the-world voyage which after 16 months, brought the fisherman back to Japan, landing in Nagasaki in 1804.
Kankai ibun, v. 1. 1807. (Description and travel of circumnavigation of seas. v. 1. 1807.)

More Accurate World Map Wins Prestigious Design Award
The AuthaGraph map is the most accurate map you'll ever see. You probably won't like it.
You probably don’t realize it, but virtually every world map you’ve ever seen is wrong. And while the new AuthaGraph World Map may look strange, it is in fact the most accurate map you’ve ever seen.
The world maps we’re all used to operate off of the Mercator projection, a cartographic technique developed by Flemish geographer Gerardus Mercator in 1569. This imperfect technique gave us a map that was “right side up,” orderly, and useful for ship navigation (because it kept longitudes consistent and the angle from any point to the North Pole constant) — but also one that distorted both the size of many landmasses and the distances between them.
To correct these distortions, Tokyo-based architect and artist Hajime Narukawa created the AuthaGraph map over the course of several years using a complex process that essentially amounts to taking the globe (more accurate than any Mercator map) and flattening it out...
