1966 Japanese map from Junior High School Textbook

Today's news (August 18th 2008) reported about a Japanese map in 1966 which was from High School Textbook "新詳高等地図 最新版" (published on March 15th 1966). It was from the journalist's own textbook. Takeshima (Liancourt Rocks) was drawn as Japanese territory - it's natural because Japan has claimed so from the start. So the journalist wonders why Korea is claiming now when the guideline to teach Takeshima precisely was decided.

  1. pacifist,

    Thank you, for posting.

    The image of the map is a bit blurry for me, so I downloaded more clear ones from the original article on "Oh my news" and uploaded them to my flickr site. Could you use those images instead of the one on Yahoo! news?

    If they are too big, you can resize after you uploaded big ones to your post.
