  • The material which I want to watch slowly is full! It was Kokura which was happened, but I wanted to see it for hours without the shinkansen time. The space is not so wide, but the contents of the Japan map of the large benefactor "Zenrin" on display are full of interesting things. We can see the history of the map and the history of the company called Zenrin in Japan and abroad. You can watch the outline of the history of the Kamishibai-style video of how Zenrin Co., Ltd. has produced a number of tools that are useful to the modern age. The founder, Masatomi Masatomi and admire the sense of smell and execution power to catch the Times with his son Shinobu. And, the map of Japan which inherited the spirit of Mr. Tadataka of the Beppu, and succeeded and completed the work of the mind far away with sincerity and perseverance, and how many Japanese have been helped until now! I was one of them, and I was very indebted to my work and my private life. Without the map data, Google Maps would not have been able to do anything. It is not a theme park, but "it is not completed forever" in this business, I want to support Zenrin's spirit to contribute to society in the present day. By the way, I can see the town of Kokura like the observation room outside the window, something advantageous.

  • 2018 12 19 Today, I came to the Museum of Zenrin map. In the back room, you can tell us about the history of Zenrin map, which has overcome hardship from the time of the good Neighbour Publishing company. In addition, when I see the material of the Zenrin Map Museum, I can convey the prime of the achievement of Mr. Taditaka Ino's performance. In the ❗ Middle room, a large Japan map made by Mr. Tadataka Ino was drawn on the floor. In the room in front of the big Hey 🎵, there is a book on the map along with The globe. I saw a few books about Mr. Tadataka Ino. I was allowed to take a glimpse of the serious efforts of Mr. Tadataka Ino, who began to create a map after the age of 50. I heard that you were checking the stars every night as you surveyed the land during the day ❗ also, I heard that the selection of subordinates while fighting the middle. The view of Kokura from the Museum of Zenrin map is beautiful. 🎵 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 〰 ️ 2018 12 20 I read the following article today. Yesterday, I felt the prime of the performance of Tadataka Inou in the Museum of the Zenrin map, so I become sensitive to such articles... > > > to explore the "Highlands" of appearance at low tide... Expected to expand territorial waters the Maritime Security Agency has decided to explore the low tide highlands that appear from the sea level at low tide.  The low tide highlands in the coastal area can be used as a standard for territorial waters, so we want to expand it with high-precision surveying technology. The United Nations Convention on Maritime Law stipulates that the waters and exclusive economic zones (EEZ) are based on the coastline of the mainland and the islands.  However, if the low tide Highland is within 12 Kili (about 22 kilometers) from the mainland or the island, it may be the reference line of the territorial waters. According to the Cabinet Office and the Coast Guard, there are currently only two confirmed low tide Highlands that serve as standards for territorial waters.  But these are based on surveying decades ago. The agency began the investigation with unmanned observation equipment in the Sea of Japan and the East China Sea, and since fiscal 2020, it will launch a survey-only aircraft that can grasp the terrain with radar from the sky, as well as increase unmanned equipment. With these latest technologies, it is possible to determine the low tide level, which is once every nineteen years, and the possibility of discovering a new low tide Highlands is high.
