In order to facilitate the earliest relief operations for victims and rehabilitation and reconstruction activities for damaged administrations, ZENRIN has provided free residential maps to the public institutions involved. We have concluded disaster support contracts with 143 public institutions starting from Yokohama City’s case in September 2013.
We have worked in cooperation with Yokohama City regarding utilization of digital residential maps for disaster assistance use. This activity was awarded by Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. We continue to make efforts to enforce relief for citizens through cooperation with public institutions.
ZENRIN MAP MUSEUM
ZENRIN MAP MUSEUM is located on the 14th floor of Riverwalk Kitakyushu, close to Tokiwa Bridge across the Murasaki river in Kokura. This is known as the starting point of survey by Tadataka Ino and had many visitors.
This museum exhibits mid-size map (reproduction by same scale) edited by Tadataka Ino. In addition, other historical maps are selected and displayed among the collection by our second President the late Shinobu Osako.
In particular, “Asia shinzu (Asia New Map)” issued in the end of 16th century shows the historical figures of Japan and communicates the recognition and viewpoints of Japan to foreign countries. We provide visitors with cultural and historical background information.
