Description :Map of the new prefecture with Japanese and English descriptions. In lower right an key to "Position of Government Office, boundaries, road and railways. On January 1, 1868, Hyogo Port was officially opened to foreign trade. The Port of Kobe (Hyogo Port) was one of the first Japanese ports to open to trade with the West after the Meiji Restoration. It was therefore influenced by Western cultures, and many foreign residences and buildings were constructed there.
The foreign settlers choose to build their concession across the Minato River, in the village of Kobe. Some, 21 years later, the once tiny village had completely overtaken Hyogo, and on April 1, 1889 Hyogo was finally gobbled up when Kobe was incorporated as a city.
Known as Owada-no-tomari during the Nara (710794) and Heian (7941185) periods, Kobe Port has long played an important role in Japanese history. Japanese embassies to China used this port as one of their points of departure.
During the Kamakura Period (11921333), trade with China and other countries made the port flourish. It was during this time that the name Hyogo Port first came into use.

Condition : Wood cut. Overall some browning. Folded as common and pasted within 2 yellow cardboards (165x100mm.) with red label at upper right partly detached and with two tears and small flaw. With red stamp "Freign (sic) Concession".
