Commentary This 1:200-scale pictorial map represents the state of the garden in the 11th month of the eighth year of the Meiwa era (1771). The map shows changes in the landscaping by order of the lord of Okayama domain (Ikeda Harumasa). For example, the rice field previously located to the south of the pond was converted into a grass field. An explanation is given about these changes on slips of paper. The map shows the autumnal landscape, highlighted by the crimson maple foliage. Although this map comprised 71 separate sheets of paper, we have combined them into a single sheet.
