    Its getting a japanese feeling but well, I am sorry to say so, but its a bit of a fake-japanese feel.
    I realy dont stick to those psydo-asian Latin Letters, which always looks horrible to me (I am an Asian so I am used to clichees about asian heritage)
    try look at 'real' japanese maps and paintings. Or woodcut prints. Also try to paint the mountains with a brush (a real one) and scan them, so you get a real japanese feeling for this kind of maps.

    Yes, you are right about the letters, i downloaded like 1 million of fonts trying to get one that i like and in the end i still not found one. Like i said, it is just to see the way that it will get. A lots of things to do in the land.
    Looking the map that you posted, its not about the curves of the elements... that vertical names that makes everything different. That boxes with names making the names looking plates saying "welcome to Tokio" give the different felling.
    i will keep trying search for a smooth font and try make it more close to a frame.

    You have a lot of empty space on the map and the title and keys looks like spread randomly everywhere. What don't you use all that space to organize the title and the keys into some kind of japanese-like cartouches?

    well, dunno
    They aren't exactly keys, are just some observations about the clans and family in a map that will work like a picture in a frame. Compared with other maps that i found, didn't found many cartouches. I will not use keys cos the towns i draw representing the real form of the city, will not put this type of description, but i will think about it, since i am still working in how i will name the rivers and calculating the scale from my original map.
    But i am thinking in not use a cartouche and i am not understanding the "randomly" that you said.

    I am thinking in put a wooden frame outside the black space, but honestly dunno how to do it and how to start, almost asking to Bogie give me a idea. About name some areas, like give names for mountains, still cant find a type that fits with the plates that i used in towns, anything wrong if i just skip this and not name the places?

    PS: 3 pictures and nobody saw the typos in FAMILYS lol
