    Over the years we've had many folding promotional maps and views for Japanese cities, and for Kobe in particular, this stands out above them all. Done in style that draws from both a European approach, as well as a Japanese aesthetic, this birds eye view gives a majestic perspective. From the train lines, to the points of interest, to the surrounding mountains, it conveys a wealth. Perhaps most striking is the way the city sits on the harbor encircled by soft clouds accented with a silver metallic print. Very attractive.

    Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 8 x 42 (inches)
