Description :A large very decorative Japanese world map published as sugoroku (a Japanese game which might be compared to backgammon) published as a supplement to the 1930 New Year’s Day edition of the Osaka Mainichi Shimbun newspaper.

The really interesting map is drawn on a Mollweide projection instead the more commonly used Mercator projection: cartographers use the Mollweide projection when an accurate representation of area takes precedence over the accuracy of shapes.
Countries are in shades of yellow, orange, green, red, purple and brown, oceans are blue. The graphically striking design encouraging players to make their way around the world along aviation routes of various types. The map also features the tracks of four legendary pioneering flights, being: the Circumnavigation of World by the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) in 1924, Charles Lindbergh’s Solo Transatlantic Flight (May 20-1, 1927), the Airship Italia’s route to the North Pole (1928) and the Circumnavigation by the Graf Zeppelin airship in 1929.

Japan lies at the center, with countries identified by national flags.
Around the border of the map are black and white images of people, animals, and historical buildings relating to the different stops along the way. The text boxes at the bottom give directions for playing the game, and important things for children to learn.
