1877 Japanese Map Showing “Usando” (于山島)

The following is an 1877 Japanese map of Joseon Korea from the 原版朝鮮全図之写, which means “Original Copy of a Joseon Map.”

In the early 1870s, Japanese maps were still showing Usando (于山島) to the west of Ulleungdo, but this 1877 map was one of the first to show Usando off Ulleungdo’s east shore.

Koreans claim that Japanese in 1877 believed Usando (于山島) to be Liancourt Rocks (Dokdo), and called it “Matsushima” (松島), but, as this 1877 map and others clearly show, the Japanese only believed Usando to be a neighboring island of Ulleungdo (鬱陵島). In fact, this 1877 map shows that Usando was almost certainly Ulleungdo’s neighboring island of Jukdo, which is 2.2 kilometers off Ulleungdo’s east shore. Korean maps at the time were also showing Usando to be Ulleungdo’s neighboring island of Jukdo, not Liancourt Rocks.

Here is the text that was written on the map.

 

Here is the cover of the book the map was in:

I “borrowed” this map from Tanaka Kunitaka’s Web site.
