I realized Japan Geographical Survey Institute "国土地理院" had released a new search engine for 1:25,000 topos of Japan.

The preliminary service site is Japanese language only.


- Please do not make any "direct link" to map images for avoiding overwork of the server.

- A private use copy is allowed under Japanese Copyright Act.
