Commentary This drawing is known as Kan’ei-kozu, or an old map produced during the Kan’ei era (1624–44). The map was probably produced sometime around 1638 together with the Bicchu provincial map. Villages are marked in different colors in accordance with the districts they belong to. In addition, different colors are used to indicate territories of the respective districts. District borders are shown in gold paint, as are the Chinese characters appearing in dark blue sections. This is the most colorful and sumptuous map, unrivaled by any in the Ikeda Family Collection.
