TRANSCRIBER'S NOTES Accents and diacritical marks have generally been standardised. Where there is a single instance of a word with an accent, and one without, no change has been made to the original. (e.g. momme/mommé; murashite/murashité; Kuramae/Kuramaé). The letter o with a macron is represented as o[u]. The letter u with a macron is represented as u[u]. Kanji characters in the original book are shown enclosed in square brackets: for example, [kami]. The italicisation of Japanese words has been standardised. Punctuation and obvious printer's errors have been corrected. Hyphenation and capitalisation has been standardised. The symbol referred to in footnote 44, an X with a bar across the top, has been represented as [=X]. Superscript numbers in square brackets are represented as ^{[4]}. Punctuation and obvious printer's errors have been corrected. For a complete list, please see the bottom of this document.



The outline of the map is that found in Volume I. of the Edo Sunago, published Keio 2nd year (1866). The detail of district maps found in the book is worked in, together with that from the sectional map of Edo published Ansei 4th year (1857), and from the Go Edo Zusetsu Shu[u]ran published Kaei 6th year (1853). The map therefore shows in rough outline the state of the city just before the removal of the capital from Kyo[u]to; the distribution of the castes.

The Pre Tokugawa villages (Eiroku: 1558 1569) indicated on the map found in the "Shu[u]ran" are:
