Awesome Japanese map of the US
http://strangemaps.wordpress.com/2007/10/17/183-map-of-... /

I live in Seattle - should I be concerned about those giant sinister-looking cats?

I love that website.

1. When did LA move to Monterey?
And I think they have Hawaii and Alaska confused.

It's all in perspective I guess.

2. An earlier thread today cited that 82% of teens can't find the US on a map
makes me wonder now which map they were showing them, and whether it was made in Japan?

3. How did Chicago get West of St. Paul
I like how Michican is the new east cost. No New England.

6. Yeah. Detroit is very important. Boston is rightfully forgotten.

4. When did Chicago move to North Dakota?
Or, alternately, when did the Twin Cities move to Indianapolis?

12. Cool! We got mountains in Florida!
Sheesh. And they claim American kids are bad at geography? I'd also love to know where that pagoda/cathedral/Eiffel tower thing came from: it looks like it's in the neighborhood. Sort of.

16. Salt Lake City is somewhere located in Colorado/Nebraska.
Denver no longer exists and Chicago is an amazingly huge futuristic city.

20. LOL! Well, I'm guessing it's better than I could draw Japan and its major cities.
And I live in Chicago. I don't have sinister cats to worry about but I am concerned about the foundation of my house since it shifted several hundred miles to the north and west.

26. Thanks for that
I realized too late that my link cuts of a bit of the edge, although you can still get to the full map from there.

I also like how they actually drew the peninsula that San Francisco sits on, but then SF is actually located nowhere near it.

Similar shape, anyway.

29. Minnesota is a large peninsula with a huge tippy drinking bird.
Perhaps that's been kept under wraps to be unleashed during the RNC convention. :rofl:

30. Ha, I wonder how many Americans can even find Japan on a world map
My guess is not too many, because when I was teaching Japanese on the college level, the first order of business in the first-year class was to make sure that everyone knew where Japan is. It was news to a lot of the students.
