Tadataka Ino is a historical Japanese who made the first Japanese map by himself using his foot. This Museum has his maps on display. The map is accurate even if compared to today's one. And it is also beautiful. The museum has a lot of information on him but it's only written in Japanese. It also has Japanese maps which were drawn by foreigners. I found the importance of the map on that period.

While visiting Sawara, we came across the Inoh Tadataka Museum. We heard of the amazing map making of Inoh Tadataka when in Tokyo. He was a great surveyor creating the first map of Japan. In the museum, you have a chance to see actual tools he used and how he used them. It really gave me an appreciation for pioneers like him. A visit to the museum is very well worth the time.

Sawara is a pleasant little village, 30 min a way from Narita with the local train. The village itself, with the Edo houses in the old quarter is well worth the trip!! The memorial is at the backyard of Ino Tadataka´s house and the house itself gives little more than an impression of the houses of the Edo period. The museum, however, which is nearby is very interesting. It explains how Mr Tadataka surveyed Japan and made the set of maps official for a couple of hundred years. The museum is modern and pleasant with some of the posters in English. At the reception you can also get an English guide. It is a museum explaining very well the methods used by the cartographer, and explaining the magnitude of the task.
