(Great European Visit Memorial Flight Game)

1925. Colour process lithograph with text in Japanese, 54.3 x 78.5cm. Old folds, slight tears and discolouration to edges. Linen-backed.

This map was published as a supplement to the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shinbun issue of December 10, 1925. Earlier in the year the newspaper sponsored two pilots to fly in bi-planes across Europe, a landmark occasion in Japanese aviation. The planes, named Hatsukaze (First Wind) and Kochikaze (East Wind), left from Tokyo on July 25, 1925 and flew through Siberia, Moscow, Berlin, Paris, London, and Brussels, arriving in Rome on October 27 that same year.
