[MAP OF THE HOT SPRINGS RESORTS OF FUKUSHIMA].
商工信用案内明細図. [Shōkō shinyō annai meisaizu].
Colour folding map showing the hot springs of Fukushima, 63.5cm x 88cm. Very good copy.
Showa 30-40? (circa 1960?).
This interesting map of the hot spring resorts in Fukushima Prefecture unusually shows the 13 towns with hot springs each as a separate small map, almost floating against the green background of the sheet. On each map, not only are the hot springs indicated, but the inns, shops, hospitals, fishmongers, banks, pharmacies, cosmetics shops and cake shops are also marked. Across the map there is attractive advertising for local businesses. A map of this region today would be very different as many of these towns have merged and many were heavily damaged in the Great East Japan Earthquake 0f 2011.
