The Japanese Historical Map Collection contains about 2,300
early maps of Japan and the World. The collection was acquired by the
University of California from the Mitsui family in 1949, and is housed on
the Berkeley campus in the C.V. Starr East Asian Library. Represented in this online
collection are over 1,900 images of maps and books from this Collection. The maps
were selected by Yuki Ishimatsu, former Head of Japanese Collections at the East
Asian Library, and scanned and put online by David Rumsey and
Cartography Associates. The project was initiated by Peter Zhou, Director
of the East Asian Library. Funding and project management is provided by
Cartography Associates and the East Asian Library.
