Japan in 1595

on July 9, 2014

 

Scan 1 - Version 3This amazing card comes from Asami in Japan and shows an old map of her country way back in 1595 – during one of the most turbulent times in Japanese history. Warlords had fought for centuries over territories, but by the end of the 16th century, things were beginning to become more peaceful and the country was starting to become the united Japan we know today. Fantastic card!
