Below is a cutout of an 1877 Japanese map of Ulleungdo that shows Ulleungdo with two neighboring islands. The one island off the east shore is obviously present-day Jukdo (竹島), but the other island off the southern tip of Ulleungdo is unnamed. Is there a translation somewhere of the placenames and distances shown on this map? I would especially like to know what is written at the southern tip of Ulleungdo.
I think it is interesting that this map showed the islet off the southern tip of Ulleungdo as a neighboring islet rather than Gwaneumdo (觀音島) or any of the northern rocks. Western maps also seemed to emphasize the islet off Ulleungdo's southern-most tip, which was labeled as "Seal Point" on Western maps. Maybe this islet was more significant than people today realize? I wonder if it is still there, or has it been incorporated into some kind of breakwater? Someday I would like to get to Ulleungdo and check out this area of the island.
The cutout came from THIS MAP, which, itself, is a cutout.
