The signature Classic style map of Japan features a bright colour palette with blue oceans and the country's terrain detailed in stunning shaded relief that has been a hallmark of National Geographic wall maps for over 75 years. The map includes thousands of place names, accurate boundaries, national parks, and major infrastructure networks such as roads, highways, airports, and railroads. Coastal bathymetry is shown with depth curves and soundings. Inset maps provide detail of Japan's Southern Outer Islands and the Ryukyu Islands. Information about the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami is included as well.
The map can come either printed on heavyweight 160 gsm paper or laminated. The paper version is perfect for framing under glass, and the laminated version is exceptionally hard-wearing as we use a true encapsulation of two pieces of 80-micron gloss laminate.
Alternatively, we can supply this map on 395 gsm HP Professional Matte Canvas using pigment-based inks - making the map highly durable and fade resistant. The exceptional clarity of printing makes this map a stunning addition to any room, and its high quality means that it will provide years of enjoyment.
The easiest way to hang your canvas map is by having wooden hang rollers attached top and bottom with a hanging cord on the top roller, so all you have to do is put a hook in the wall. The hang rails come lacquered in a natural timber colour.
Note: Please allow 10 working days to deliver hang railed maps as they need to be attached by our framer.
