The University of British Columbia Library
has a collection of 285 Japanese maps available for viewing online.
The maps are from the Tokugawa Era, 1600 to 1867, and focuses on “privately published and travel related maps and guides” from that period. The collection is mostly from the George H. Beans collection
, acquired by the UBC Library in 1965 and since added to. Maps are available in jpeg format and are zoomable.
