Drawings of all kinds, such as road illustrations, village maps, and castle town maps, were created using a wide array of methods with various purposes in mind. The Edo shogunate poured their resources towards the creation of kuniezu (Japanese provincial land maps) during their rule. This exhibit will introduce you to the process of creating kuniezu, along with kuniezu created by the Yonezawa domain and other relevant documents. Take a look at Edo Japan through the historic lens of the kuniezu!
